As everyone already knows, I am into music. I do like other things though, and one of these things is biking. Every year around Spring I start going through YouTube to watch all the new biking videos to get me psyched for the biking season. Sometimes I happen to come across some pretty good music in these videos too. For instance, in this video I got hooked on Band of Horses‘, “The Funeral.”

Filmed in and around Edinburgh, Scotland by Dave Sowerby, this video of Inspired Bicycles team rider Danny MacAskill features some the best riding I’ve ever seen. There’s some awesome riding, but also some of the most technically difficult and imaginative lines you will ever see. Without a doubt, this video pushes the envelope of what is perceived as possible on a bike.

Enjoy the music and the riding!
