Stunt artist Danny MacAskill does the impossible on a mountain bike

Danny MacAskill, aka Danny MegaSkill, is at it again with another incredible video display of mountain bike dancing, choreographed beautifully to a catchy musical tune called "The Wolves" by Ben Howard.

MacAskill, the mountain biking pro and stunt artist from Scotland, jumps from one side of a train track to the other, climbs every piece of metal in an industrial train yard and, for the pièce de résistance, rides atop an unstable cable.

"It makes slacklining look like a walk down the middle of the street," Adventure Journal wrote.

The newest video is called "Industrial Revolutions," and it is every bit as good as his "Inspired Bicycles," a video that has produced more than 26 million views on YouTube, and "Way Back Home," another mountain bike video gone viral by the mountain biker.

It is poetry on a mountain bike and it is well worth five minutes of your day to check it out, right here, right now:

Mountain bike used to make sweet music

Danny MacAskill has shown more than 25.6 million people on YouTube what you can do with a mountain bike.

Now Roger Lima of WhiteNoise Lab shows us that you can also make sweet music with a mountain bike using only bicycle sounds, produced using a "compressor, distortion, delay and EQ," along with drum sticks and cardboard.

Bicyclist stunt-artist video goes viral on YouTube

If there is such a thing as poetry on a bicycle, this is it.

As reported on GrindTV Outdoor the other day, street trials pro Danny MacAskill offers “a surreal, stunt-filled bicycle journey from Edinburgh, Scotland, to the rider’s hometown of Dunvegan in Skye.”

It's a video that belongs in some sort of festival for short films -- the Banff Film Festival, perhaps? The eight-minute film is called "Way Back Home," and here it is:
