Video: Man rides bike... with two sheep hanging onto him

There’s space for a third on the handlebaas

There are cyclists who’ll leave essentials behind in a bid to ensure that they and their bike are as light as possible – then there are cyclists who’ll happily provide two sheep with a lift. Well, we say cyclists – so far we only know of one.

Recorded in Amahara State, Ethiopia, the footage brings to mind other great videos of fully laden cyclists.

The guy with a goat on his back – which was again in Ethiopia – was one that immediately came to mind. Just the one goat though. With hindsight this was a disappointing performance.

Another favourite was the Brazilian cyclist riding with a fridge-freezer on his back. There’s an extra frisson of excitement in that one in that he also sees fit to take on some cobbles. Will he come a cropper? Spoiler alert: no, he doesn’t. Somehow. Or at least he doesn’t in the footage.

In Brazil again, there was the guy who rode with a gas canister balanced precariously on his head. This chap clearly felt that his feat was the height of stability though as another video shows him riding with a watermelon balanced on top of the gas canister which is again on his head.

Carrying stuff on a bike: what’s your favourite example of the art?

Alex has written for more cricket publications than the rest of the team combined. Despite the apparent evidence of this picture, he doesn't especially like cake.
