Brave Cyclist Pulls Off Most Insane Bike Ride Of All Time— & The Footage Is Incredible.

Where do you find adventure? A trip to a Cozumel? Jumping out of an airplane? An adorable christmas pageant brawl? The options are endless. However, if you’re Danny Macaskill you take things a bit further.

Danny is a 31-year-old professional cyclist originally from Scotland.


He’s famous for his incredible stunt videos posted on YouTube. They’re not only beautifully shot and well-produced, but Danny seemingly puts his life on the line in each video, accomplishing breathtaking feats on two wheels.


Possibly his most famous feat was a few years ago when he took his extreme mountain biking to Cuillin Ridgeline on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.

He has to take a row boat just to get to the actual island.


And the ‘fun’ starts as soon as he steps outside the boat.

Rock-hopping with a log bridge? Sure.


Jumping over waterfalls? Why not?


Danny maneuvers every obstacle and stays on his bike the entire time.


Well, unless he’s climbing a mountain which he intends to ride down.

Yep, he’s just crazy enough to conquer this as well.


The terrifying yet awe-inspiring trip across the ridge looks like this from Danny’s point of view:


And from the drone it looks like this.


What’s crazier? All of the aforementioned shots were just Danny’s warm up, a tune up before climbing another mountain and biking an even more dangerous ridge that looks like this.


Mmmhmm … No thanks!

Watch the incredible video of Danny’s journey below.
