Inspiring Stunt Cycling - Danny MacAskill

I am definitely no extreme stunt cycling expert. However I came to know about Danny MacAskill and find his video very inspiring.

While watching his video I can say he cycling style is like doing Parkour on bicylce. Watch it for yourself, than you will know what I am talking about.

He is someone who believe in his dreams and went all the way to make his dream happen. Here a video and some facts about him.
