No doubt you watched the debut installment of Nigel Sylvester's POV BMX series, Go!, in which he conquered the streets of NYC by bike. I mean, the thing has almost 2 million views on YouTube. If you missed it, you were living under a rock. Today, however, Nigel is back for the sequel, which finds Nike-backed pro cruising the star-studded streets of LA by helicopter, BMX, and even Ferrari. Needless to say, this dude is living the dream.
I don't know about you, but when we think of carving lines in the Alaskan backcountry, with think of helis, summit-to-ocean steeps, and plenty of pristine powder. Freeride Vincent Tupin and Martin Söderström had a different idea, however, taking to America's final frontier in the middle of summer for one of the raddest mountain bike edits we've seen in awhile. If you're ready to trade the groomers for some fresh loam, then this one is for you.
I'll freely admit, one of the most terrifying moments of my life was getting caught in a Mt. Washington thunderstorm in the dead of July. The wind was whipping over 40 miles per hour, the temperature dropped 30 degrees in five minutes, and increasingly large chunks of hail began falling out what had been, the last time I checked, a bluebird sky. I've told this story a number of times over the years—reinforcing Mt. Washington's claim to the "world's worst weather"—but today is the last time, because today is the day I watched Tim Johnson climb the damn thing on a bike...in January. Kudos my friend, you are a f'ing beast.

Tim Knoll has one of the most unique perspectives in today's BMX industry, and his latest part—which finds the flatland wizard hitting the streets of Berlin for some mind-boggling hi-jinx—is proof of that and more. Check it out. Go pop some Excedrin. Check it out again.
What more can be said about Danny MacAskill that hasn't already been gushed about at length?

Oh, and make sure to stay tuned for the ender, which is bound to catch you completely off guard.

Legendary mountain biker Steve Peat may not compete quite like he used to, but that doesn't make his recent trip to the Norway's Lofoten Islands any less captivating. If you're looking for the perfect synthesis of man, machine, and nature, this might just be it.
Like Danny MacAskill's Imaginate on space-grade LSD, Red Bull's latest project, Kaleidoscope, is quite possibly the single most visually stunning bike edit we've seen.
