After Watching This Bicycle Crash, You Might Never Ride A Bike Again

Rock Lititz Tour Bicycle Race.” Sounds nice. “A series of races throughout the day,” culminating in a high-level race featuring actual competitive cyclists? How fun! And just look at some scenes from Lititz, Pa., where the race is held – what a lovely town! Why, looking at that, it’s just enough to make you want to hop on a bike yourself and go for a nice ride and GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH:

Yes – this, unfortunately (and terrifyingly) was the scene at the Rock Lititz race yesterday. Luckily, according to the person who uploaded the video above, the first crasher (we’d assume this person sustained the most severe injury, because did you see that?) was able top walk after the accident, but was still taken off in an ambulance. Good call. Everyone else, we’d assume, was more or less okay, and served in one hell of an unintentional pro-helmet-wearing PSA. Well, that or an anti-bike-riding PSA.

  • Cycling is important to me

    Please examine the statistics regarding bicycle related injuries and deaths vs automobile related injuries and deaths BEFORE posting such a one sided article!
    Why should you do so BEFORE hand? To avoid comments like this one, that make you look stupid…

    Most people don’t ride bikes in races, and those who ride bikes will not stop riding them because of this. Don’t overreact because something you like is being mentioned in a negative light.

    How the heck is THAT terrifying? Everyone got back up and back on their bikes. When a car crashes people don’t get back that easily. STOP RIDING YOUR DA** CAR!
