    Unbelievable

    Everyone knows that you can’t ride a bike on a beach without a 4.8 inch wide tyre.

    Another 4 year old fan here (my daughter, I am a touch older, but still a fan) and she loved it with a wide eyed wow. The look on her face and the mime she performed to her mum when I asked how he got over the fence was a picture though πŸ™‚ She is another “when I am bigger” girl although she is more set on being the fastest person ever on a bike.

    LOL at Scotroutes

    But what’s he ever done on grit?

    I haven’t been on them climbing forums for sooooo long.

    Of course you remember what happens to mountain bikers who play on grit…

    The fence reminds me of riding with him near Aviemore. I warned him about a fence (4 or 5 lines about 6ft high) up ahead that’s hard to see. Anyway, we set off and he was popping off rocks and roots, with me trying to shout to him to slow down for the fence.. only to see him pop off some rocks and only spot it about 10ft away. The bike never made it through but Danny managed to burst through the gap between the lines! He looked a bit shook up when I reached the fence but it was funny after. It’s good that he’s sussed out a new way to negotiate those darn fences.

    Marvellous!

    All the better for the Martyn Bennett sound track. I went to his memorial gig/rave in Glasgow. Sound of a generation.

    Check out the rest of the album – GRIT.

    Aye-aye , You probably aren’t aware who Martyn Bennett was or have any knowledge of his music, Google his name and if afterwards you still have have a derogatory opinion then may I suggest you keep it to yourself and stfu.

    I too have done the fence flip trick AND both myself and the bike landed on the other side of the fence. The bike had the forks bent back to the downtube and the headtube was split amongst other things. I was covered in blood and bruised my bollocks but I’m still claiming it as MacAskill-esque superskills.

    I knew someone would eventually find a use for those Santacruz Ol’ Skool headangle and top tube lengths! πŸ˜€

    OMG! I’ve got the very same shoes he has!
    I’m gonna try that fence flip tomorrow.

    I’ve watched it three times now. I am still afraid he’s going to fall !

    Stunning film and a wonderful advert for Scotland.

    Loved the soundtrack so much I downloaded it then Googled ‘Martyn Bennett’, very sad.
    How do you ‘grab’ a still from the video, or is it witchcraft?

    Google screen grab/screen capture for your chosen computer-thing. It’ll typically drop the image of the screen into the clipboard from which you can paste it into the image editor of your choice and crop it.

    On windows it’d typically be the PrintScreen button towards the top right of the keyboard, followed by opening MS Paint and doing edit > paste. However you need to do this in the woods at night wearing a pointy hat.

    All a bit pointless imo. Black Cuillin is great place – don’t see what dragging a bike along it adds.

    I met Martyn Bennet twice.

    The first time I was driving through Glencoe with a friend. Some loon was was standing in his underpants on a bridge parapet on the A82 waiting to tombstone into the Glencoe Burn (as you do). “Stop”, yelled my friend. “That’s Martin”. She’d met him earlier that year in Shenaval bothy where he’d been living for a week on Salmon and pot. Had a beer in the Clachaig with him.

    The second time was in the Sligachan Inn. Walked in and he was in a quiet corner playing a tin whistle after a day on the Cuillin. Had a beer with him.

    He would have liked that video.
