Found this article interesting, about cycling on a road in Bolivia. I always wonder about comments like
"If you go to London, you have to see London Bridge and if you go to Sydney you have to see the Opera House," says Andrew Jagoo, 26, from Melbourne, recovering his breath after the ride. "And if you go to Bolivia, you must do the most dangerous road. There's an element of risk but you can say afterwards that you've done it."
Actually you don't have to do it. You could decide to do something completely different and not follow what everyone else thinks you "have to do". There are a lot of experiences out there.
