Footage Shows Kangaroo Storm Cyclist at 70kph

Rider escaped any damage and caught the 'roo on camera

A Kangaroo was caught on camera almost bounding into a cyclist at 70kph.

The rider narrowly escaped being hit, and caught the almost-accident thanks to his Cycliq gadget – an integrated camera and rear light.

 Cyclist Tony was riding along Brindabella Road, West of Canberra, in Australia when the incident took place. He was unharmed, though his rear wheel and tyre were damaged.

He explained: “Last Sunday, I was riding down a steep hill at 70 kph when a large Kangaroo jumped out of the surrounding bush, I just had enough time to swerve a bit and the Kangaroo hit my left arm and the rear of my bike, somehow I managed to stay upright even though I had damage to the rear wheel and tire. “

No animals were harmed in the accident, as far as we know, and the Kangaroo is still at large in the wild. It’s not the only incident of this kind – recently we reported on an incident between a female rider and a kangaroo where the woman’s breast implants saved her from serious injury.
