Shot in various locations around the UK, the video was viewed millions of times, receiving tens of thousands of likes and over ten million of views by early 2014.

After the success of Road Bike Party, Martyn was working on a sequel. During trials display he had an accident which left him paralyzed from the waist down. Road Bike Party 2 was completed with a help from other riders – Danny MacAskill and Chris Akrigg. “Road Bike Party 2” was released on 10/Dec/2013, and like the first episode became a success. The video gained more than 7.5 Millions views and 66.000 likes in the first month.
Dude, he’s paralyzed from missing on a stunt.
Yikes. Didn’t know that. I heard he had a bad fall but did not realize it was so serious.
