No risk, no reward, right? The difference between a worthy adrenaline rush and pure stupidity is a variable that can't be quantified scientifically, so we'll let you be the judge with these nightmare-inducing bike rides. Happy Halloween Eve.

Or was it Jaw drop? Go to your local 5-story building. Take your bike to the roof and ride off. That'd be a pretty similar and frightening experience.  Bender for life!
