When it comes to exploring the reaches of what’s possible by bike, one name comes to mind and when one of Danny Macaskill’s edits of mind blowing skill on two wheels drops you better not miss out.

Rising out of Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Black Cuilin ridge, the remote Dubh Slabs on the Isle of Skye are the latest location to test exactly where Macaskill’s limits lie. Said to be inspired by rock climbing and the individuals setting new routes on big walls around the world, Danny takes on the Slabs on his mountain bike and of course makes riding some of the steepest most technically challenging terrain imaginable look remarkably simple.
