For mountain biking fans

If you like mountain biking and like Scotland then watch this video, the views on this are stupendous, irrespective of the courage needed to face that ride, but the scenery is absolutely stunning IMO.

Enjoy, but don't try to follow the route......

That is amazing

Walking some of that would be difficult and that flip at the fence is just to cool for words

I was passed this link by my old mountaineering club and was hugely impressed.

My only concern was "Who nicked his boat whilst he was up there?"

If you search his name on YouTube, you will find other great videos showing his skills, including one amongst Bunny Girls.

This was the first one of his amazing videos that I watched filmed in and around Edinburgh, the music is great too......

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z19zFlPah-o

he has done quite a lot of these videos and obviously has an incredible sense of balance and an amazing ability to control his bike.......

I don't think I will emulate any of those tricks........ ever......
