So you think you can ride a bike?

No, you can't. Presenting the amazing urban biking antics of Danny MacAskill

The following video is provided solely as a public service for cyclists who would like their mind blown by the amazing urban bike stunts of Danny MacAskill. (Found via a tweet from Dan O'Donnell aka @danothebeach.) I make no claims that it provides insight into how the world works. It's just cool.

My favorite part comes when MacAskill is shown waiting patiently for a red light to turn green, and then immediately proceeds to do something utterly insane. I dearly love the combination of respectful cyclist etiquette with deranged Evel Knievel suicidal tendencies.
