On your Bike…


Could any of you have ever imagines a bike could be ridden in this way, say, 20 years ago? I don’t think so. Think about what it means in relation to what’s possible now, not just for a kid on a bike, but for all of us. An important point: Over the years, we’ve closed skate parks, we’ve ridiculed young kids who skate or ride as young punks who should “get a job”. What do you think they’re thinking now as they watch much of our world turn out to be a lie? We need more guys like this, not just to show us what they can do on a bike, but where we can go with some vision. Where we can go when we’re prepared to create something that didn’t exist….

Filmed over the period of a few months in and around Edinburgh by Dave Sowerby, this video of Inspired Bicycles team rider Danny MacAskill (more info at www.dannymacaskill.co.uk) features probably the best collection of street/street trials riding ever seen. There's some huge riding, but also some of the most technically difficult and imaginative lines you will ever see.
