MUST WATCH: Cyclist Defies Death As He Takes on Isle of Skye Mountain Ridge

Fearless cyclist Danny MacAskill has left us with a real life cliffhanger this week after he released footage of himself conquering the infamous Cullin Ridge on the Isle of Skye on a bike.

The 28-year-old stuntman set off on his most daring challenge to date, one that his parents feared he would not return from.

The daredevil climbs the mountain ridge with his bike on his back before setting off on an absolutely horrifying descent just yards away from death at every turn.

The film will get your nerves shaking, your adrenaline pumping and your stomach quaking as it takes footage from his helmet-cam. At one stage, he is sitting precariously balanced on the top of the cliff on a piece of rock that you imagine is not big enough to hold the length of the bike.

A documentary following the adventurous man will screen on BBC One on October 10 called Danny MacAskill – Riding The Ridge.
