“Riding a bicycle” may not be the first thing you think of when brainstorming extreme sports – in fact it may not even make your top 10.
We stand corrected. This video shows exactly what it means to not so much push the adrenaline buzzer but stamp down on it hard as Danny Macaskill puts the “mountain” back into mountain biking in one man’s search for a serious rush. With jagged rocks, impossible ascents and breathtaking views, the stunning cinematography will ensure that this seven minute thrill ride will have you on the edge of your seat throughout.
Set in the Isle of Skye around the notorious Cuillin Ridgeline, Danny’s ability to handle a bike and traverse the deadly terrain is something to behold, as is his unerring ability to stay calm while navigating narrow paths sheer inches from a vertical drop.
Roll the video. Oh, and look out for the crazy flip at the end.
