Bicycle ride across Spanish seaside rooftops will leave you breathless

Leaping around city rooftops and flying between buildings would be impressive enough for most people. But what if you did the same thing ... with a bicycle?

That'd be a whole new ballgame.

That's what professional cyclist Danny MacAskill proves in a gorgeous new video. The 29-year-old emerges from his apartment onto a rooftop, then fearlessly launches himself into what seems like the void.

But he lands safely on a nearby roof, initiating an amazing journey across the tops of buildings in the colorful Spanish Canary Islands seaside town of Gran Canaria. He uses the bike with practiced skill to make breathtaking leaps, loop-de-loops and even bounces up and down stairs!

Danny MacAskill starts his journey, and gives everyone else vertigo.

It's a performance that clearly required control, nerve, balance... and possibly a dash of insanity.

The whole feat is captured by a Go Pro on MacAskill's helmet, with the help of some additional perfectly-positioned cameras.
