Filmed over the period of a few months in and around Edinburgh by Dave Sowerby, this video of Inspired Bicycles team rider Danny MacAskill features probably the best collection of street/street trials riding ever seen. There’s some huge 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 trials bike.

Sadly, my reaction to seeing these two fotos was …. “I’d ride that”

Even sadder was the fact that I was referring to the bike!

It must be auld age … or a compliment to the lovely Mrs Who’s charms?

.

The lovely lady, by the way, is Victoria Pendleton

At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Pendleton won the gold medal in the Women’s Individual Sprint Event?

The nude shot is a recreation of the famous photo of Lance Armstrong.

By the way, Lance’s autobiography “IT’S NOT ABOUT THE BIKE” is a brilliant read, even if you have no interest whatsoever in cycling or, like myself, no interest inĀ sport.

.

It’s a truly inspiring story where Lance gives a very unflattering account of his early life, being raised by a single parent, subsequent rise to fame, andĀ eventual fight against cancer.

.

His recovery was all the more amazing in that he refused to be involved in all the “spiritual-miraculous-god-bless-amerika” type nonsense that the media tried to foist on his fight against cancer

READ IT

And also … check out the LIVESTRONG site which Armstrong has created to support and help cancer sufferers and survivors
