A Polish cyclist was lucky to be alive after he rushed through the space between two passing trams - and got caught in the tracks.
CCTV footage from the front of one of the trams shows the rider attempting a dangerous overtake which he almost pulls off, but then his wheel catches and he’s sprawled across the road:
We’ve learned that not only was the cyclist unhurt, but thanks to the impressive reactions of the driver, his bike was too.
There’s a lesson in here somewhere, though.
After an unpromising start, having to be bribed by her parents to learn to ride without stabilisers, Sarah became rather keener on cycling in her university years, and was eventually persuaded to upgrade to proper road cycling by the prospect of a shiny red Italian bike, which she promptly destroyed by trapping a pair of knickers in the rear derailleur. Sarah writes about about cycling every weekend on road.cc.
