Danny MacAskill – at it again

I like the occasional heatmap. Sometimes they are very pretty, like the one below from Suunto’s MOVESCOUNT in 2016 and could almost be a work of art for your pain cave’s wall. Sometimes you might be ‘somewhere new’ with little idea of where to cycle, swim or run. Sure you have a satnav but is…
