Remember Bas Keep and his video from last year in which the BMX stunt rode down walls in Brighton and Croydon?
Well, he’s back with another video, and in this one takes to a tunnel beneath a reservoir with some pals to do a bit of riding.
Getting down there was an achievement in itself, and could only be done when the water level in the reservoir was low, with access gained via ladder from what Keep described as a “plughole” – basically, the reservoir’s overflow system.
Once down there, there were some top skills on show as well as cups of tea being passed around (in proper cups, too) – although as Keep points out, if someone had a crash and for example broke a leg, there’s no way out.
As he says in the description to the video on YouTube, “terrifying” – well, it is Halloween …
Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
