It’s hot outside. If you could use a little virtual cool down, check out this video of the Glacier Bike Downhill, a downhill mountain bike race done completely on groomed ski trails. If they are really going 144 km/h that’s about 89 mph on a mountain bike.
We love Moab. It’s one of the coolest places to mountain bike on this rock we call earth, but we have to admit, this video with ZERO mountain biking in it is definitely worth sharing. Filmed at Coyote Arch outside of Moab, Utah, we encourage the faint of heart to look away. It looks like these guys weren’t the first to do it either, but there video is definitely the coolest. (See other videos below).

The following video doesn’t depict the actual Cliffs of Insanity as featured in the movie The Princess Bride, but this ride has cliffs and they are insane. The real Cliffs of Insanity (real name is the Cliffs of Moher) are featured in a previous article we wrote called the 8 Most Dangerous Mountain Biking Trails in the World. The mountain trail in the video below probably needs to be added to the list.
Does full-suspension even make a difference here?
The United States is a car country. We drive everywhere, and we all pay the price: transportation alone accounts for 20 percent of the family budget and is the second biggest cost after housing. A sedentary lifestyle doesn’t just kill our pockets, either — it kills us. Research has proven that swapping out driving in favor of biking can have incredible health results.
