Car Hits Cyclist, Dude Manages To Land On His Feet

cyclist-lands-on-feet.jpg

Get down from there, bike -- you're not a plane!

WARNING: A VERY solid "OH F*** OFF!" from the cyclist right before he gets hit.

This is a video of a London cyclist who gets hit by a car, catches air, then slides down the hood of the car and lands on his feet. If I were that cyclist I would have had some pretty strong words for the driver afterwards. Probably, "I'm gonna f***ing kill you and eat your shitty heart!" I tried to watch the video frame-by-frame to see if the driver was texting or anything, but I couldn't make them out. Share the road, folks -- watch out for cyclists. I've actually been hit by a car when I was on my bike before, it was terrifying. I was six and my grandpa was backing out of the driveway.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks again to Lindby, who, for two tips in a row, wins an all-expense paid trip to wherever they are now. Congratulations!

    When I was a kid, we rode bikes on the sidewalks. Because, you know, dying in a heap of twisted metal and broken bones isn't cool.

    As we can observe here the many benefits of having a helmet cam.
    These include the following:

    • providing proof for accident claims
    • amazing stunts - even if unintentional.

    I gotta tell you, it's not the bikes! THESE MANIAC CARS! I was playing my regular game of jacks out on the freeway, and I nearly got clipped THREE TIMES LAST WEEK! It's insanity!!

    If you ride a bike, GET THE FUCK OFF THE ROADS, STAY ON THE SIDEWALK. YOU AREN'T AN AUTOMOBILE, STFU HIPPIES

  • matty black

    your sense of entitlement is absolutely disgusting

  • the antagonist

    Not sure if you're a troll or an idiot, but either way, fuck you. Side*walk*s are for *walking*. Bikes are traffic. It's the fucking law.

  • Kanger

    Sidewalks are for WALKING.

    Get your self-centered American head out of your ass. In England and most of Europe, you ride your bike on the road. It's illegal to ride on the sidewalk, and there are bike lanes to support it on the side of the road --- Just like there is here.

  • brodyc

    We ride our bikes on the road in America too. The guy is just a putz who has trouble putting one foot in front of the other, let alone operating an actual bicycle.

  • chris

    It's illegal to ride on sidewalks in most major cities; at least here in the US.

    Although my Lost brethren might be a little harsh in his message.. I have to agree that the righteous indignation for people recycling their childhood love of two wheeled magic machines is a little ridiculous. You don't walk down the GD road, why do you need to bike down it? In a big city with a bike path, have at it.. but the average suburban road with the Lance Armstrong wannabe, that undoubtedly has a higher opinion of himself simply for riding rather driving, thinks he has every bit as much right to be there as cars capable of turning him into a fine impression of a light mango salsa. You do not. Same goes for the Motorcycle crowd.. "Save a Life, start seeing motorcycles.." How about you "start seeing cars" when you're busy weaving down center lines in traffic. IF YOU WANT RESPECT AS A VEHICLE, FOLLOW THE SAME RULES AS A VEHICLE.

    I probably shouldn't dignify your idiocy with a rational response but here's an enlightening fact, my choice of transport doesn't make me fair game for malicious or incompetent drivers. I obey the laws of the road and regularly compensate for the lack of skill or judgement of others. Your logic belongs back in the 50s when it was OK to treat all black people terribly. You make it sound as if it's difficult to drive a car without constant collisions, it may be true for the incompetent and distracted who should not be on the roads at all.

  • Bill Mead

    I'd propose this to people who suggest that you should bike on a sidewalk.

    Remember what a god damn sidewalk looks like, thick gaps, pedestrians, the occasional non-existence of said sidewalk, I wouldn't ask that you drive in the special thumb tacks and nails section.

  • matty black

    but... they DO have that right, so there's that whole thing.

  • Kanger

    Watch the video. There are numerous cars parked or stopped in the bike lane. Perhaps cars should follow the rules of the road too.

  • yousuck

    There is a bike lane if you could use your eyes...

  • People really need to be more observant with people that commute on bikes. I've almost been hit multiple times but my cousin lost his life after getting hit by a mustang in Atlanta last fall.

  • Johnny Bigrig

    Yet you still insist on proving your point by riding next to motor vehicles? I'm sorry, I just don't see the sense in that. It is not even the slightest bit unusual that a car scrape another car on a daily basis, and it amounts to nothing but an argument and an insurance claim. When a Cyclist, who is far more difficult to notice, is brushed, it's a miracle if he comes away with less than a broken bone or two.

  • Kanger

    Watch the video. There are numerous cars parked or stopped in the bike
    lane. The cyclist has NO CHOICE but to ride in the road.

  • chris

    In NYC cyclists are supposed to wear an orange vest or something similar, yet they still get hit. Motorists are just as careless
