 So nice to see that you enjoy and respect nature. Most people forget when they are in the woods they are a Guest in Mother Nature's house. Why douchebags want to kill everything that crawls or flies in the woods is beyond me. Please don't forget you are a guest in the woods tread lightly leave only Footprints or tread marks and take only pictures.

 Mountain bikers will really be respectful towards the Nature the day they`ll ride carbon-free bicycles.

 Truth, but if I find gold I'm taking that too.

 Disrespect towards insects and also microorganisms and fungi is probably one of the biggest threats for the ecosystem. There is such a huge industry geared towards their destruction, it is baffling. And it really is one of the most important thing to teach your kids. If you happen to have this reflex of acting scared, disgusted or whatnot towards these (especially in nature), learn to suppress that. You don't want to mess with their open minds.

This the best video I've ever seen on Pinkbike. The filming, the scenery, the amazing riding and the humor. It is all there. Love it!

 @vinay: I raised my son that he could kill anything he wanted as long as he ate it and wasted nothing.

 One of the better videos I've seen here in a while. So simplistic with great music that allowed you to hear the dirt under the tires without drowning out the nature. Crazy how bug-diverse that location seems!

 Great vidoe, just lovely. All it needs is a Sir David Attenborough commentary!

"And as the majestic mountian biker flys swiftly through the forest pathes, in search of new trails to perfect his art."......

 Very nice video. I love the contrast between the rider on a machine and the bugs doing their thing. One of the main reasons I ride is to get out and enjoy nature and I am glad that there are others who appreciate it as well. It showed a peaceful side of riding not often displayed in videos.

Can anyone tell me what that golf-cart-like vehicle is? There was one in the wheelbarrow video as well. Are these just used at parks/ski areas, or do they drive on actual streets?

 I'd compare this video to the very versatile and outstandingly beautiful BMW X5. The car comes in various colours, has more legs than us humans and is just good for nature. We shall never forget the beauty of the nature we ride in and the friendly atmosphere surrounding the X5 on the parking lot.

 Sadly according to the recent research since 1989, in 63 nature reserves in Germany the total biomass of flying insects has decreased by more than 75 percent. This trend is observed all over the world.

 Nice video! Respect to those bugs! But why is there a picture of model of the Morning chapel by Eva Prats & Ricardo Flores(Venice Biennale 201Cool in the feed?
