Wonderful cycling video

This is beautifully done! Is there any truth to the rumour that Miss Kenton was trying some of these maneuvers when she broke her arm?

It is a wonderful video, yet how could he go wrong? It was filmed in Scotland, the Brave!
As for the purported rumour, here's my best bicycle trick:

Kind of like parkour on a bike. I've seen other vids of him doing even harder stuff, but this one is, as the OP said, filmed beautifully.
