Video: Cyclists try to free fat bike from electric fence

Shocking footage

Electricity and metal do not mix well, as any fule kno.

So when a cyclist riding a fat bike realised, as he was clambering over a fence, that it was electrified, he got a bit of a shock and promptly dropped his steed.

What that meant, though, was it then needed to be untangled from the electrified fence, with predictable results, which were captured on video.

The footage was posted to YouTube on Saturday by user Big DT, who said:

Whilst pedalling today my mate Paul went to put his bike over a fence. Half way though he realised that it was electric! So he dropped it on the fence. This is a video of him and my mate Al trying to get it off! Please excuse the swearing and oh yes by the way the clicking sound is the electric pulsing!!
