But, you've undoubtedly heard reports about those Florida sink holes
that swallow entire resorts without a trace?

Why, they can be thousands of feet deep and the Horrible 100 runs
their course up and down them as well as the 300 feet of elevation
above ground level.

Rockets launch for the moon from Cape Canaveral so the bikes also follow
that trajectory.
