We’ve all crashed or fallen off our bikes at some point. It can happen to anyone. Even the pros take the odd tumble – hell, it wasn’t so long ago that road cycling champ Mark Cavendish fell off his bike into a giant puddle in Essex.

Falling off your bike is not a particularly infrequent thing to happen. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s painful, sometimes it’s highly embarrassing, but it really takes a special crash to make the rest of the universe sit up, take note and say: “what the hell just happened there?"

The way to make your crash a viral sensation? Make it ridiculous. Make it unexplainable, or absolutely next level. Confuse the hell out of every who sees it and make them question the very boundaries of the reality they live in.

Or, y’know, smash your head through the windshield of a nearby car, break your bike in the process and get caught on CCTV. That’s going to make a few heads turn as well.

And that’s exactly what happened to a budding rider in Erdington, Birmingham late last month, with the footage from the incident surfacing online in the past few days.

It was just past 9pm when the cyclist appears at the top of the screen, riding nicely along the road, taking in some sites and then bam – random left turn and head through a windshield. Even on the silent CCTV footage you can tell that it’s quite a kerfuffle.

This is all only heightened by the fact the dude then walks away holding a bike with a front wheel that is well and truly taco’d. A strange ordeal indeed.
