Bicyclist Gplnd was biking along a bike path when he noticed something up ahead on the path. Ugh, another jerk left a large wooden log right in the middle of the bike path. Not only is that annoying, but it’s dangerous too.
Helmet camera footage from bikers traversing difficult terrains is always heart-racing and exciting. But what about the footage you don’t see when the biker has a serious fall? As there are so many sports-themed GoPro commercials featuring stunning perspectives, XeteraCX thought it would be fun to take this helmet-camera video of a biker having a serious fall off the Bolivian Death Road, and added some inspiring music to make an unexpected commercial. This clip has gone viral with over one million views!
This scene looks like it’s from a dream, but it’s actually real life! Ben Vezina was bicycling down a nature path when he stumbled upon not one kangaroo, but an entire horde of them! The kangaroos kind of looked at him like, “what are you doing in our neighborhood?” Thankfully, the Australian marsupials left him alone and now this video has gone viral with over half a million views!
In America, biking is really more of a recreational sport for exercise or enjoyment. For travelling, we mostly use cars. But in much of the world, biking is a simple, healthy, and affordable way to get around town. As a results, many large international cities have bike lanes on the roads.
In São Paulo, Brazil, someone parked their car right in the way of the bike lane. One strongman decided to take things into his own hands and literally picked the car up and moved it out of the way to the cheers of other bikers. This clip, appropriately titled ‘The strongest man in the world’ in Portuguese, has gone viral with over 3 million views!
Most bicycle races are not that exciting. But as its name implies, the Megavalanche is mega intense. Riders race down a steep mountain of ice and snow, crashing and knocking into each other. Racer Jamie Nicoll wore a helmet camera during the recent race, and captured an intense scene at the beginning of the race. Jamie ended the race in 7th place.
