Danny MacAskill’s Wee Day Out | Trials Star Turns Hay Bale Into a Giant Unicycle and Log Slides a Mountain Bike

The Scottish trials sensation also manages to ride through a puddle over six foot deep...

Danny Macaskill’s Wee Day Out has just dropped online, a video feature in collaboration with Red Bull that sees Danny turn a hay bale into a unicycle and ride through a six foot puddle.

The footage shows the trials sensation taking to the Scottish countryside for a day of fun on his Santa Cruz mountain bike, with Danny saying of the release: “Although I’m doing very abnormal riding, I set out to make a video that hopefully relates to the normal rider.

“Every rider has had to ride through a puddle when it’s been a bit unknown how deep the centre of that puddle is. It just so happens that the puddle in my film is 6ft deep.

“I wanted to do a video on the mountain bike again and give myself creative freedom with this film. It’s meant to be a fun day out on the bike, so I wanted it to be quite light hearted.

“The whole film has been a real big challenge. Pretty much every trick that I’ve done in the film has been a massive challenge and a little bit out of my comfort zone.”

Danny first came into the public eye when he dropped his ‘Inspired Bicycles’ video on YouTube in 2009, a trials video that has now amassed almost 38,000,000 views.


MacAskill has racked up over 250,000,000 YouTube views in all since then, with other hit releases including ‘The Ridge’, ‘Imaginate’, ‘Epecuen’, ‘Way Back Home’ and most recently ‘Cascadia’.

His latest ‘Wee Day Out’ starts out on the Hogwarts Express, and the magic gets going right away, with a signature leap onto the rail tracks. He nails the jump on the mountain bike with all the precision of his usual trial ride.

From there on out it’s hit after hit, including a scrub to barrel roll and some insane acrobatics and hops going in nearly every direction, concluding with a cameo from Danny’s dad himself.

But no more spoilers from us. Have a watch of Wee Day Out. It’s impossible not to love Danny MacAskill…
