Must-Watch Video: ‘Danny MacAskill: The Ridge’

Some guys hone their skills so well they are able to perform amazing feats that other mortals have a hard time imagining, much less imagining doing themselves. Such a man is Danny MacAskill. The guy is a Scottish cyclist who can ride a bike anywhere — jumping fences, riding on top of fences. He can bust moves in a city over concrete in ways that you have to watch two or three times just to understand.

Meanwhile, that’s all well and good, but what about outdoor adventure?

We stumbled upon a new Danny MacAskill video that is just too good not to share: Danny MacAskill: The Ridge. It is freaking amazing. First, the cinematography is great, and second, the crazy skill and joy he exudes is something else, too. So what’s the “ridge?”

The Cuillin Ridgeline somewhere near the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Beautiful country . . . and some wicked cool moves that many of us couldn’t do in a pair of hiking boots, much less on a mountain bike. Check it out:
