Danny MacAskill’s Wee Day Out

If anyone knows how to make the already beautiful countryside of Edinburgh, Scotland even more incredible, it’s Scottish trials cyclist Danny MacAskill. Riding over hay bales and into puddles like no one else can, MacAskill enjoys a ‘Wee Day Out‘ full of never-seen-before flips and tricks.

Bonus: Behind-the-scenes footage at the very end reveals just how challenging trials riding can be (and how important helmets are).
