This cyclist got took a tumble in busy traffic trying to cling on to an HGV

The video is shot using a dash cam from inside a car and shows a typical urban street. The camera car is stopped in traffic and in front is a large HGV and a cyclist.

The cyclist decides to hitch a ride on the HGV, stretching out his arm to cling on to its trailer. The traffic then begins to move and the cyclist is pulled along slowly by the HGV.

However, it quickly becomes clear that the cyclist isn’t ready as the speed increases and he begins to lose balance. For some unknown reason the cyclist doesn’t simply let go of the HGV and in a panic is pulled onto the road in front of traffic. For some other unknown reason, the cyclist isn’t wearing a helmet.

While it isn’t illegal to not wear a cycling helmet, the reasons for wearing one are displayed in this video. Some cyclists, like the rider here, wear cycling caps for the image, but he’s undone all his hard work with this tumble. Some people walking next to the cyclist on the pavement turn to see if he’s OK, but all looks fine.

He picks up his bike, clearly very embarrassed by the situation. And nobody holds back in the comments – all saying the same thing.
