Is This The Luckiest Cycling Escape Of All Time?
According to Katie Melua: ‘there are nine million bicycles in Beijing…that’s a fact’ (apparently). With all of that traffic on the roads, the odd accident or two won’t come as a major surprise. This video, on the other hand, IS a big surprise.
If you were to put money on a ‘cyclist versus truck’ scenario, you’d be considered insane to bet on the cyclist but not on this occasion. This Chinese gentleman manages to avoid every single wheel of the oncoming truck and ends up shaken but completely unharmed.
When it comes to dealing with trucks, it’s best to play it safe and avoid coming close to them – this guy was lucky but what are the chances of something like this happening again with the same outcome?
