On the roof.

Tim BayerBRIGHTON New York—(Weekly Hubris)—1/4/2016—The video I’m sharing with you this week had me riveted to my computer screen. I was impressed by both the skill of the cyclist and the danger of his stunts. First-person video footage filmed from a helmet camera enables viewers to ride along—in the driver’s seat. (It’s apparent, too, that these dangerous maneuvers were performed without a safety net.)

A quick nod to the past: if you happened to miss my last post, here’s a link to “Robotic Tesla.” When you return from viewing the robot footage, you can watch Danny MacAskill ride the roofs.

(If you, yourselves, come across an entertaining link or video, I’d be interested in seeing it, and sharing it with my readers at Weekly Hubris. Please contact me at: Email: tim@demogrid.com.)

About Tim Bayer

Tim Bayer, Webmaster, and Assistant Editor of Weekly Hubris, was born and brought up in Webster, New York. He attended St. Bonaventure University, earning a BS in Computer Science, and then worked in the hi-tech world. In 2002 he turned his creative energies to product development and video production with the release of his first independently produced products. When the demand for web site design (TBayer.com) and freelance writing increased, he once again switched skill sets . . . to writing and web work. An avid or, to be more accurate, rabid, disc golfer, he may often be found chasing plastic while in pursuit of the perfect round on a disc golf course, or designing and developing disc golf products for Demogrid.com. He says he “tries to find the humor hidden in everyday experiences, because life is too important to be taken seriously.” (Author photo by Tim Bayer)

    The videos of Danny MacAskill were absolutely fabulous. I watched several and the shots were so outstanding I almost puked. Normally I don’t advocate or support things where people can get seriously injured or killed, but his skill is marvelous.

    Yes – his skill is amazing. The shooting angles of this video really allows the viewer to get the full impact of the danger involved with these rooftop stunts.
