Video: Biking Amongst the Balloons in Cappadocia, Turkey

Cappadocia has become world-famous for its rock formations and hot-air ballooning (thanks, Instagram influencers). As it turns out, it's a pretty solid mountain biking spot too. The trails are flowy and interesting, the rock formations make for countless interesting lines, and the views are obviously hard to beat.

We're not sure who put two and two together and decided to make Cappadocia a hot-air ballooning hub, but it was clearly a good call. The balloon-filled sky is spectacular, and the drone shots in this video are some of the coolest we've seen in a while.

Jacob Mullen Rides His Bike on Mars

Google told us that the latter half of this video is in British Columbia, but we're actually a hundred percent sure it's on Mars. Here's our evidence: first, look at all those weird wiggly rocks! No way you can find those on Earth. Second, the way Jacob Mullen rides a bike completely defies all Earthly gravity. Third, there's no way someone on Earth could grow a mustache that magnificent, the laws of physics just wouldn't allow it. We'd love to know how he got transported from that very
