    Livin' on the edge

    This video makes me nervous every time I watch it. The penalty for failure is just a bit too high for my taste.

    Can anyone find video of that dangerous sea-cliff riding, on a narrow trail, hundreds of feet above the crashing surf? I believe it's in the U.K. somewhere. I tried Googling, with no luck.

    Them boys ain't right...

    ...I've ridden trails a couple of times with short sections of that kind of exposure and that was plenty!

    Pretty sure there were a couple more riders at the start than at the end--some must've fallen off!

    I guess riding that trail will definitely teach you bike handling skills. To be honest, I would be more worried about the rock cliff on the left than the drop off to the right as banging the rock cliff on the left will make going off the edge to the right a possibility.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    i think if you were to fall off it would go something like this...it's an old edit but the op's post reminded me of it..it's not good.

    Someone post a link to some Porcupine Rim footy - that's a LOT scarier than the OP's vid (not that it wasn't intimidating enough).

    That's it! Thanks. I wish there were a good video of the Cliffs of Moher, but these pics will have to do:

    No thanks to any of those kind of trails. I am too old and have too much to lose at this point in my life thank you very much.

    You must be stoned. I've ridden Porcupine Rim and there is nothing remotely like what these guys are riding. Yeah, there are a few sections where you get close to the cliff's edge, but there is nothing there that compares to what these guys are doing.

    I've been told helmet mounts for the video camera do not show the severity of the terrain and make major drops look like small ripples. If this is only 1% true, I would be terrified just walking on those paths in real life....and would never be caught near them with a bike

    I have ridden exposed trails in my time including the flying monkey in southern Utah. This one looks significantly more sketchy... I can attest; however, that you are indeed correct and cameras don't really do the terrain justice.

    Love this video. To ride it though, I would have to saw off 6 inches of the left side of my handlebar.

    I was thinking something similar along those lines. Just think if the left handlebar caught the side of the cliff, causing you to fall to the right. Yikes
