Epic Video of a Professional Biker on a Breathtaking, Death-Defying Ridge

Get ready to be blown away! In this new film called The Ridge, professional biker Danny MacAskill shows us what it's like to mountain bike on a death-defying ridge. Located in his native home of Scotland, the ridge is a bumpy terrain in the Cuillin mountains of the Isle of Skye that's one part beautiful and one part dangerous. Previously, we had seen how stunning the Isle of Skyland could be, and now we get to enjoy this incredible destination through a 7 minute video, which to date has been seen over 11 million times! (It was shot by a helmet cam, drones and lenses.)

“It was a serious effort to just get to the filming locations,” says Stu Thomson, who directed the The Ridge. “The Cuillin Ridge is seven miles long, and to get to the easiest summit is at least two hours of hiking up, and then two hours back. We had to carry food, water and all our camera gear, including the drone and eight batteries for it, in and out each day. The longest day on the mountain was 8 a.m. until 1 a.m., and included a total of seven hours of hiking for five shots in the film.”
