Cyclist Danny MacAskill has performed a series of hair-raising stunts on the roofs of Las Palmas in Canary Islands in Spain. Not only does he jump from roof to roof on his bicycle but he also balances on narrow walls that protect terraces from the sun and wind.
Fortunately, we can view a beautifully filmed video of the extreme cyclist’s stunts in Spain. MacAskill wore a GoPro action camera on his helmet, camera crew was filming, and it looks like a drone was used for filming as well.

Danny MacAskill was born and raised in Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. A YouTube video titled “The Funeral” launched his career as a professional stunt/extreme cyclist in 2009 when he was 23 years old. Until then, he had worked as a bicycle mechanic in Dunvegan.
