This cyclist doing stunts at Gooseberry Mesa in St. George, Utah, fell while trying to jump a crevice. He landed right at the edge of a sheer drop, one wheel of his bike hanging precariously over the edge. What amazes me about this video is that the rider has nearly killed himself, but he is laughing and seems not to be aware of any danger. There is definitely a side of me that is jealous of such fearlessness. Or maybe I am a bit smarter.

I have written about a number of cyclists who ride along cliff edges and ridge tops. Still can’t understand how they all do it so casually…
