Mad cyclist loose in Edinburgh.......



Hullo ma wee blog,

Now I could rant about this video and how dangerous, inconsiderate to pedestrians etc and all the rest but for once I'm mellow and find it fascinating somehow. When I was a kid a bike was for getting from A to B as quickly as possible or for getting out into the country, going fishing or whatever, but this guy, a professional cyclist I believe, takes things to a different 'urban' level with some amazing stunts.

Although maybe it should come with the script
"No pedestrians were injured or maltreated in the making of this video"
He might have killed a few bikes though!

But I wouldn't try this at home folks.

Your Mum will give you such a row.

Inspiring, well maybe I won't give it a try, but it does kind of look like fun. I had a purple girls schwinn with a flowered bannana seat way back when, I could get it to do "Wheelies" sometimes, but that was aout it.

Seen it before. What amazing skills. I like my walking and cycling as I can't balance too well standing still! Just got to keep moving!
