GoPro has uploaded an incredible video entitled “Cascadia” to YouTube which features street-trials star Danny MacAskill cycling the rooftops of Gran Canaria and performing some seriously impressive stunts.

Daredevil Danny MacAskill Cycles The Rooftops Of Gran Canaria

MacAskill speeds over the paint-pot houses of Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, miraculously staying atop his bicycle as he jumps over roofs, avoids cracks and climbs stairs.

Speaking to about the video, MacAskill revealed that despite choosing the idyllic location specifically for its good weather, production was delayed due to rain.

“We chose Gran Canaria for this project firstly because of the weather. We wanted consistent nice blue skies,” he said. “Actually it rained quite a lot during our shooting there, but there’s not a lot you can do about it.”

Most people probably wouldn’t be too enthused to have someone cycling over their roof but when asked if he had any trouble from locals MacAskill said:

“Not at all. Generally the locals in Las Palmas were really welcoming. We went knocking on the doors asking if we could get up on top of the rooftops. They were very welcoming and next thing would be I had to bring my bike up there. I think it would have been very difficult to do that anywhere else in the world.”
