Car Hits Cyclist, Dude Manages To Land On His Feet

July 30, 2014


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!!

    Its entitlement to think a bike is as much as a vehicle as a truck. I'm talking about maintaining a proper safe experience for everyone.

  • matty black

    your sense of entitlement is absolutely disgusting

  • 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.

    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.

  • Whew. Good to know it was only an accident, mate!

    "aww fuck off"
    I like this guy

  • I got hit by some asshole who ran a redlight in Atlanta when I lived there and I nearly beat the living fuck out of him. He got out of his shiny BMW and was this tiny little guy wearing a tucked in Ralph Wiggum University shirt...I realized had I hit him I would have likely killed him frankly and unclenched my fist and took a few steps back before verbally ripping him to shreds.

    Not sure why the brand of car matters, unless you want to look like a classist asshole..and I'm certainly not advocating for the rampant slaying of cyclists on the road.. but it'd be nice if they made up their minds if they were vehicles or not. You get the Bike in front of you going 15 MPH in a 40, and we're supposed to patiently ride behind you, BECAUSE IT'S YOUR RIGHT!, and then when we stop at the red light, you just peddle right by on the side, and go through the red light... I don't understand why you need to be on the road.. There are more than enough bike paths in any decent sized city.

    I got hit by a small peugeot once & flipped a couple of times in the air before falling into a roll. Even had one of those "slowmo" moments while in the air, staring at the clouds.

    Everyone on the street rushed... to surround the car & swear a storm on its driver. I got up on my own (his kids were staring out of the back like I was a zombie), we passed pleasantries & I walked home with no more than a bruised knee.

  • Good to hear you weren't seriously injured.
