The Cuillin Ridge on the Isle Of Skye stands more than 3,000 feet above the Scottish countryside. It’s a treacherous bit of terrain that is only visited by experienced mountain climbers and one crazy talented cyclist. Danny MacAskill recently posted a video of himself riding “The Ridge” and it’s pretty intense.
In addition to showing off his amazing riding skills, MacAskill said that he also wanted to show the world that the Isle Of Skye is one of the most beautiful places in the world.
MacAskill said: “Ever since I was a kid growing up on Skye I have always dreamt about riding a bike up on the Cuillin ridge! The project took a lot of planning and was probably one of the most physically demanding films I have ever worked on! It was definitely a labor of love though as I wanted to show off the island for how it is and make everyone who lives there proud to be from this amazing part of the world.”
Stu Thomson and Cut Media are responsible for the breathtaking film.
Thomson said: “It was certainly one of the most demanding locations we’ve ever filmed, but a rewarding one at the same time. Danny and I are very proud of being from Scotland so it was great to be able to show off the amazing landscape along with Danny’s incredible riding.”
