    Default The Brief Interval from Safe to Roadkill

    Alright, so nobody actually died in this video, but it is an interesting exercise to count how many seconds it was from the time this cyclist was safely riding along the left edge of the roadway until he was launched into the middle of the intersection and found himself under the front bumper of a 10t truck driven by one of my coworkers.

    That sure was a close call. Been riding a bicycle myself for many years here and even got hauled away in a ambulance once and other visit to the clinic. Had my fair shares of close calls also.
    I watched your second video, your area looks fantastic for cycling in. Also, what kind of camera are you using and where was it located on the bike or on you.

    I didn't expect the thread to veer more sharply and quickly than that bicycle did.....

    It was a helmet mounted GoPro.

    I wouldn't be surprised to find the English manual available online. Maybe you could start a thread asking for advice about GoPro cameras?

    I think your friend deserves a beer or 10,000.
    The cyclist definitely made a wrong move there.
