There are a lot of things that make cycling tough. There’s the fitness, the weather, and, of course, the motorised vehicles that forget you exist.
Take a look at this cheeky chap in China for example. He’s probably the luckiest guy in the world.
As you can see in the video up top, the rider in question got taken out hard and stranded under a fourteen-wheeled lorry. But despite the nightmare crash, he somehow walked away unharmed.
And this guy isn’t the only one to be thanking his lucky stars about a truck-related incident. If you cast your eyes downwards and give the YouTube link a click, you’ll see a cycling crash from Russia – and it’s freakin’ insane:
These crazy near-collisions are happening in London as well. In fact, the floppy-haired Mayor of London was once famously involved in a similar incident.
Who remembers the time Boris Johnson nearly got hit by a truck? This CCTV footage is absolutely mad…
The moral of the story? Be careful when you’re out on the roads!
