CYCLING sensation Danny MacAskill has put bad parkers to shame – by filming himself jumping inch-perfectly between the white lines separating parking bays.

In the footage, posted on Twitter, MacAskill, from the Isle of Skye, positions his bike on one of the bay lines before jumping several metres and landing exactly on the next line.

The cyclist completes the incredible feat four times, and despite the width of his bike wheels being almost the same as the lines, he gets it exactly right every time.

On two of the jumps, he even manages to flip his bike round 180 degrees, and still lands with precision, on the line.

Parking spaces in the UK are a minimum of 4.8 metres by 2.4 metres, but numerous pictures in the past few weeks have shown drivers unable to get their vehicles in between the lines.

 

MacAskill posted the video on Twitter last night (Sun) with the tongue-in-cheek caption: “Stoked to finally realise my childhood dream of gapping car park spaces.”

The footage has been liked and shared over a thousand times by Twitter users.

Social media users rapidly expressed their admiration.

James Ayton wrote: “Awesome skills poise and balance. Love that this has been a childhood ambition realised!”

Andrew McGhie said: “Couldn’t even do that distance in a long jump… never mind on two wheels. Awesome.”

Betsey Trotwood quipped: “I can do that. In my dreams.”

Kokie Pipkin simply added: “Pretty freaking amazing!”

CYCLING sensation Danny MacAskill has put bad parkers to shame – by filming himself jumping inch-perfectly between the white lines separating parking bays.

The footage showed him jumping off roofs, performing a stunt on a tree and riding along spiky railings.

Subsequent films have seen him perform stunts in the mass of damaged buildings and structures in the abandoned town of Epecuen in Argentina, and in Taichung in Japan.
