What does your wee day out on the bike look like? Danny MacAskill’s Wee Day Out is pretty impressive to say the least. A nice train ride through the countryside of Scotland with nice little pastries. A few hellos to the locals. And then he throws down some unreal moves that you have to see to believe. Interestingly enough he’s not on a trials bike but rather the Santa Cruz 5010, a full suspension mountain bike. What do you think of this video? How does your wee day out compare? Let us know in the comments below!
Alright, so it does sound dirty but the dutch reach could save someone from crashing or worse. It’s a pretty simple concept that everyone who parks on the street should be employing. Give it a try the next time you get out of your car and let two people who don’t cycle know as after all, they’re likely the ones who won’t be thinking about the mother riding down the street with her kids in tow when rushing out of the car. And hats of to Outside Magazine for putting this video together! Bike safe!
Downhill mountain bike is crazy to begin with. Riding without a tire just on the rim is ridiculously hard. Both of them together….?? Now that’s something! And how fast he’s still going! Don’t try this at home!
If you think downhill looks crazy, try riding without a tyre…
Tune in this weekend for all the action from #Leogang.

You may have seen this completely car-free highway that was and is still being built in Germany. There’s one that is way bigger and more complete in Canada. It essentially crosses the country east to west and north to south. Which if you know just how big Canada is… The video below isn’t super descriptive of the details but it’s a multi-use trail that goes through some of the most populated areas of Canada which allows for easy access for, well a lot more people. A lot of the trail however resides in areas very remote but with this trail, you can now connect them. Let us know what you think of this trail in the comments below and how much you would take advantage of a trail like this if it were close.
The longest car-free road on the planet.

Trade shows like Eurobike in Germany and Interbike in Las Vegas as well as events like the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii, are venues in which companies frame the release of their new, top products. One revolutionary company and bike is the Diamondback Andean which is a triathlon specific bike that was built for speed. One of its signature design elements is the massive wing-like foil that fills the space between the front and rear wheel.
With innovations like this, bikes and riders simply go faster for the same amount of effort. It’s been toted that new records will be set with this bike but this brings up the question is it the rider, or rider and bike that make a winning combination. Of course if you can afford this bike when it’s publicly available, you can go faster but what about the athlete that can’t, or simply doesn’t want to spend this much money on a bike? They’re almost beat before they roll out on course. Where’s the balance with using the latest in technology and keeping sport at a level playing field? Let us know in the comments below.
Wow, this is quite the stunt on a bike, and fixed gear bike none the less! The position that he’s in is known as the superman. Two key things to note in the video in addition to the crazy position, is the scooter driver getting a no-handed shot and the rider clipping back in. Those were impressive as well!

When out riding you have the opportunity to run into all sorts of things. Some are expected while others definitely are not. A family of skunks is definitely in that unexpected category. Good thing they took a liking to this rider!!
Skunk family meets cyclist. Don’t move!
