Frequent cyclists know that cars are among of the biggest dangers on the road. Many of drivers aren’t very good at sharing the road, and that’s exactly the case with this pickup driver. To make matters worse, its payload isn’t even properly strapped down. However, that might have saved this rider. It gave him the one-in-a-million shot of getting knocked off his bike one moment and a split-second later lying on a mattress.
The best part might be the guy’s reaction afterward. There is no sound in the video, but it is pretty easy to imagine what is going through his head while he’s sitting there. The rider appears unscathed by the crash, but his bike fate is left somewhat ambiguous. Scroll down to watch; and now that the weather is warming, remember to share the road with cyclists.
