Midweek Movies

by Chipps 10

Yep, it’s time, once again to while away a little of your day by staring at moving pictures – instead of staring at a moving Singletrack forum.

And did you wonder where people get bike names from? The Surly Blog gives away the secret behind the Karate Monkey… Caution, coffee-spittingly funny

“Glorious sunset of my heart was fading. Soon the super karate monkey death car would park in my space. But Jimmy has fancy plans! And pants to match.”

And here’s a video from last week’s Singletrack Sleepless In The Saddle from British Cycling

Now, when people say ‘On that ride, we were inches from certain death!’ you expect a little exaggeration…
Not so with this lot. Utah spine riding at its scariest:

Joe Barnes and the Dudes of Hazzard are back, this time with a full on movie! Here’s a little teaser of what’s to come:

It’s a couple of months since the Original Source Mountain Mayhem, but the memories are still strong. Here’s a reminder, all edited down to a couple of minutes

You’ll have seen Danny Macaskill’s new video when we put it up a day ago, won’t you? It only had 301 views when we did. Now it’s had 450,000!

Can you ride tandem? Perhaps it’s time to organise one of these in the UK…

And finally, a bit of music from the confusingly named Welsh band “OK”

And, if you’ve got a spare ten minutes… the always-amusing “Richard Hammond in a Formula 1 car’

  5. That ridge riding one is probably the scariest MTB vid I’ve ever watched. 2.42 onwards!!!

  6. I always wondered what a sleepless event would be like. Now I’ve watched that, it’s just as I imagined. Riding around someone’s lawn all day…
