This guys is better than you at mountain biking

Odds are you probably don’t know the name Danny Macaskill – that is, unless you are a big fan of crazy mountain bike videos. If you are, then you’re probably keenly aware of him.
Macaskill is a trials cyclist, meaning he spends most of his time doing things on a mountain bike that experience – and even physics – would suggest are at least difficult, if not outright impossible. And yet he does it, and does it with ease.
In his newest video, titled “The Ridge,” Macaskill returns to his home of Scotland and heads to some incredibly eye-opening country. For those familiar with the Scottish landscape, Macaskill is riding through the Isle of Skye and he takes on the infamous Cuillin Ridgeline.
In 1601 that area became the site of the last Scottish clan battle fought on the Isle of Skye. According to legend, it is also haunted by the ghost of an outlaw named MacRaing. None of that really matters to the enjoyment of the video though. To make it simple, there’s a very pretty area with a mountain biker doing stuff most of us can only dream of.
The video was originally released on October 2, 2014, and since then it has gone on to receive nearly 25 million views. And if you are interested in the landscape, you can check out the link attached to the video, Visit Scotland.
