I'm a cyclist as well and it looks doable in the video. The only downside I could see on the video was the lack of a cycling lane. However, when I dug further it appears like there is some substantial terrain at the western end of the route.

That is only a small part of the route the good side not much traffic, You can do it. But, I don't think in one day. Maybe the wise thin would be to try it in a car first.

yeah... i believe it can be done. it is about 2200m climbing! I prefer to split that in two days! Two longer climbs with approx. 500 to 600m altitude difference.

2200m of climbing puts it out of reach for me especially when on tour with 4 panniers, a trunk & bar bag.

I think it would take more ten two days to do this.

Last clip I think

I believe the road is about 100 Klms for those considering a bike trip on it

Phantastic! A road like built for bikes.
Thank you for the recommendation
