Ultimate Ups & Downs
If you have seven or so minutes to spare and can take the trip, join Danny MacAskill as he cycles up, along and down The Ridge of the Cuillin Mountains, Skye. Your link is either through a BBC website item or directly to YouTube. You may even feel the need to don a helmet while watching this acclaimed stunt-cyclist. Some one-and-quarter million viewers have accompanied Danny from the still shores of Loch Scavaig to the sharp summit of the Inaccessible Pinnacle.
What a journey for this Glasgow-based trials cyclist - from stunts that are not overshadowed by the Forth Bridge to a journey over the Skye Bridge reaching his home at Dunvegan and then into and up the Cuillins. Start your working week with an amazing spectacle of skill, stamina and ... a head for heights.
