Riding a bicycle on a busy street can be terrifying even without some lunatic pushing you off your bike into traffic.

London Metropolitan Police released this harrowing video Aug. 25, in the search for the insane monster who chased a cyclist down after she totally politely asked him to watch out for her while he crossed the road.



The silvery-est lining of this dark, fuming cloud is that she wore he head camera to capture the whole thing so the dude can hopefully be caught.

In the meantime, watch out for those cyclists on the road. They are helping the environment, alleviating traffic and trying to improve themselves.

And on a broader note, let us never forget this sage advice from Bill and Ted.

An idiot spectator thought it would be fun to jump into the 2015 Giro d’Italia bike race on Sunday, and he ended up causing a huge pile-up.

In the clip, the camera shows a man riding from the sidewalk into the street, but then it pans away right as the collision takes place. What we see is the aftermath, which was later confirmed as his fault by riders who were affected by the debacle.

“If I get hold of the d*ckhead that had the brilliant idea of diving into the peloton on a fixed bike with 10km to go, causing us to crash…” tweeted Eugenio Alafaci from Trek Factory Racing.

He also complained about the collision on his Facebook page.

At least one rider quit following the crash, and others suffered minor injuries, according to Nine MSN.

We’ve seen a number of other bizarre crashes over the past few months in European races.

At Belgium’s Tour of Flanders, two competitors were knocked down by support cars, and a spectator appeared to stick his arm out knocking down a racer at the Molecaten Drentse 8 in the Netherlands.

This bicycle manufacturing tutorial film from 1945 was unearthed with a nice vintage feel. The film originally was produced by the British Film Council, which makes it super legit for anglophile bike enthusiasts.
