Martyn Ashton trying a new morning commute, riding a $16k bike like he stole it

If you watch only one video of someone doing cunning stunts today, this is probably the one to watch:

While patiently awaiting Felix Baumgartner's daring leap from infinity*, my Twitter feed blew up with links to this video of Martyn Ashton doing things that he probably shouldn't with a £10k ($16,000 US. Thanks, Google) bike. But, you know, whatever. Because he can, I guess.

As mentioned, the bike is the Pinarello Dogma 2, the same as the ones used by Team Sky's Bradley Wiggins & Mark Cavendish to win the 2012 Tour de France.

*Or, roughly, the edge of space.
