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!

Ok, I came across this video a little while ago and have been wanting to share it since it pretty much leaves me speechless everytime I watch it. These guys have put together the most crazy touring vehicle I have ever seen. I have no idea where this is really, other than the fact that the video I originally found on is listed as coming from Russia. So, if you know anything about these guys please let me know. Otherwise, enjoy!!
