Often it’s the simplest things in life that get you stoked, like riding a bike as fast as you can down a hill. The adrenaline that pumps through your bloodstream cannot be replaced by anything artificial, the feeling of being of the extremely delicate line between crashing and staying in control is a feeling we all search for. I hope this video signifies this feeling.

I took a trip up to Scotland to visit Innerliethen to do some pre-season filming with Dan Farley. Dan is a quiet character, but although he doesn’t say much, he also happens to be one of the most talented guys I’ve seen ride a bike, an amazing rider to put in front of the lens.

Filmed on a Canon 5D Mark ii, with various lenses and supports.

About The Author

Mitch Lex

Mitch grew up in Flagstaff, Arizona where he fell in love with kayaking, backpacking and just about everything else there is to do outside. Since moving to the Midwest, Mitch has continued to explore trails and rivers throughout the country. His greatest adventures include roaming with grizzlies and caribou on a NOLS course in Canada's Yukon Territory, swimming with dolphins while studying abroad in New Zealand, and guiding backpacking trips in southwestern Colorado and Utah. He sees the outdoors as a place where you can discover what is truly important in life while exploring a little bit about oneself along the way. Contrary to popular demand, he enjoys dried pineapple and Reese's pieces over M&M's and raisins in his trail mix any day of the week. Sorry GORP.
