I can't even hit 'play'. My fear of heights doesn't care that it is a video. Sadcryface

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Really? Wow. The first few minutes are him rowing his bike over to a lakeshore, from there it get a bit rad.

Really. My stomach lurches if there is a sudden scene over a cliff or over the side of a tall building in TV shows and movies. It's bad.

If killing a spider for my husband and/or son would require me to get more than about four feet off the ground...the spider stays.

I'd like to see someone ride a bike over Crib Goch in Snowdonia... Terrifying place.

The only thing there I can't do is the flip near the end. Other than that, I could certainly ride the rest... I would almost definitely fall to my death though.

Its an incredibly beautiful video. And that ride down near the end looks so fun.

I had never seen anyone flip over a fence like that on a bike.

RE: Extreme mountain biking
Great vid. Just recently watched a film called Where the Trail Ends. It's on Netflix. Dudes traveling the world in search of the gnarliest terrain to bike. Worth a look.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
