This one went a little viral in the various bicycle forums on Sunday. A motorcycle rider takes a curve too wide and too fast and plows into a pair of cyclists on the edge of the road. One rider reportedly walked away, the other was taken to the hospital.
The location in this video is known for show offs and stunts. Not that I’ve never done such things as a youth, no sir.
Via numerous sources.
Update: Biking In LA has the gory details and another camera view from a chase rider.
When living in LA, I wasn’t the strong rider I am now. I always stuck to the coastal bike trail. This accident is pretty gnarly. I know cyclists in the area would have to contend with road ragey automobile drivers…But motorcyclists who can’t handle turns well? Crazy. I’m glad no one died.
Looks like a classic case of target fixation.
