That video looks like some 3rd world country judging by the infrastructure quality, major holes in the road, and so on…

Roads in the upper midwest take a beating with the big changes in weather and freeze thaw cycles. It doesn’t help that there’s very little money available anywhere for infrastructure repair and upkeep. Road quality aside, that video is good one. Thumbs up to Winnebago Bicycles.
