The Return of The Mad Cyclist.........




Hullo ma wee blog,

Last year I posted a video of Danny MacCaskill, professional cyclist, doing some incredible bike tricks on the streets - amongst other places - of Edinburgh. I'm not a cyclist but I enjoy the skill, bravado and creativity that goes into doing some of the tricks he does and the videos have good production values and a cracking soundtrack. Now he's back. In his latest video he is on a journey from Edinburgh where he now lives back home to the Isle of Skye where he was brought up, stopping off along the way to showcase more of the incredible and sometimes plain daft, ability he has to use the buildings and landscape for exuberantly doing his thing.

I hope you enjoy it .

Blimey! That chap's got skill. I noted half-way through that he cleverly avoids those crutch-clutching moments by not having a saddle . . . very wise!

Skye is SO lovely and I hope we can go back again some time . . .

"Daft" is an excellent work to describe this. As is "magical," I must admit. Fascinating to watch, and the guy is truly an artist. Thanks!
