Bike trip

This is superb.

What would you do if someone lent you the road bike that Bradley Wiggins won the 2012 Tour de France on? Run some red lights in Kalk Bay? Terrorise locals on Sea Point Prom? Or take it out for a quick spin around some really road bike unfriendly places in the UK, like Martyn Ashton does?

Much like Danny MacAskill’s Way Back Home (featured here back in August), I’m amazed at the abilities on show. And this is on a £10,000 carbon fibre road bike.


For those interested, the music is Sound of Guns “Sometimes”. And for a little bit of 6000 trivia, I’ve run across the lake featured at 3:35. I can also turn water into beer, given a few weeks and some rudimentary brewing equipment.

Way Back Home

I found myself watching this video of Danny MacAskill last night and I thought that I should share. Not much to say about it, save for the fact that the moving images are pretty amazing and the music is rather cool as well. Since those are the fundamental building blocks of the video, it’s therefore safe to say that it’s worth a watch.

For those interested, the music is Loch Lomond “Wax and Wire” and The Jezabels “A Little Piece”.
