There's a reason that Danny MacAskill of Inspired Bicycles rides bikes for a living: He's incredible. In this short film, MacAskill shows off some of his skills, including an opener in which he rides his bicycle across the top of an outdoor iron gate as easily as a circus performer would walk a tightrope.

You have to watch the whole video to get a sense of Danny MacAskill's range of talent. This dude is seriously badass. Oh, and in case you're wondering (like I was), the song in the background is 'The Funeral' by Band of Horses. Stats for Urban Tightrope Bicycling Trending: Older & Mild
