Video viral of the month: Road Bike Party 2 – Martyn Ashton

Road Bike Party 2 is the follow up to the successful Road Bike Party video, by Global Cycling Network, which has clocked up an impressive 9 million plus views after being released last October. The new video, literally only a few days old, has already reached the 3 million view mark.

The new video, made by renown mountain bike trials rider Martyn Ashton, was made just three months after he suffered a spinal injury.  Martyn pulled in help from Danny MacAskill and Chris Akrigg to show off some impressive bike skills, all captured by  videographer Robin Kitchin. The full story is captured on VeloUK - don’t be under any illusion that this isn’t dangerous stuff. The section of the film where he does the loop the loop in the concrete tunnel makes you gasp (and if you hang around long enough for the credits, you’ll see it go wrong).

Road Bike Party loopy

So, you might say a not particularly festive viral video… but doesn’t every boy still want a bike for Christmas?
