The Great Cross-Country Weaving Ghost Highway Ride

I was looking at some sets of rare photos of North Korea posted by the BBC, and one really struck me: ghost highways. They have these massive highways connecting the more urban areas of the country that are virtually empty because almost no one can afford vehicles to drive on them. Therefore it's common to see people weaving back and forth across the entire multi-lane channels on bicycle, fearless of ghost motorists.

So I propose: open up the border at least once for the Great Cross-Country Weaving Ghost Highway Ride of North Korea.
