“Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.” – Thomas Jefferson

Martyn Ashton the creator of the Road Bike Party Video Series was severely injured 2 years ago while riding and paralyzed from waist down. His doctors told him he would never walk or ride a bicycle again… Ashton proved them wrong.

Watch the inspiring video below:


Together with fellow trails rider Danny MacAskill, Chris Akrigg, and Blake Samson, Ashton recently released a new video of himself riding through the Snowdonia mountains in the United Kingdom using a standard mountain bike with modified seats.

“As soon as they’ve pushed me off at the top of the summit, I was no longer the guy in a wheelchair: We were four mountain bikers riding together and we were having so much fun; it was the best time I’ve ever had on a bike.” – Ashton said.

Ashton showed us that with friends and the right mental attitude, nothing is impossible.
