Shocking Motorcycle Crash into Bicycles 4/27/2013




Rider hits cyclists coming out of a turn on Mulholland Hwy. Cyclists didn"t appear to have serious injuries. Note about cyclists and riders co-existing on this famous 2 mile stretch of road. Even though bicycles are up here in increasing numbers, this is the first time a bicycle has been hit by a motorcycle In the four years I"ve been up here. Motorcycle riders of all skill levels come up here to ride. The rider was not speeding & riding fine until he hit his foot and stood the bike up causing the bike to go wide. He then target fixated on the cyclist. . Here is a similar crash – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGAXsv2SL0c There are many more just like it. It is a very common type of crash on this turn. Just usually no one is there and the rider falls alone. It is very unfortunate, and a rare case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. We wish the cyclists a speedy recovery.

Update on Cyclist from Comments -" This was my friend visiting from England who was struck first. (I was further back on the hill when the accident happened and am one of the guys who comes in the picture to his assistance). He"s doing ok today, was discharged from the hospital yesterday with no broken bones. Miraculously.."

  1. Who the frack rides their bicycle on that stretch? Id say takes balls but
    he was so over dramatic for just road rash. It looked aweful but he just
    had scrapes. An ambulance, special cushions, shade held by 2 guys, cops?.
    Jesus my first motorcycle wreck was road rash and I just picked it up and
    went on with my business. Will say tho it looked like insta kill. What was
    the motorcyle guy doing .. daydreaming??

  2. If you have a week constitution you should not watch this video! Ok now
    just grit your teath and watch it! #gladtheyworehelmets . I hate the
    sound it makes when he hits the pavement. Ouch! ?

  3. If that was a car the guy is dead. Another example of why bicycles do not
    belong on the road. You can get as self righteous as you want, a helmet and
    blinking lights arent going to save you. Talk about a death wish. Risk your
    life just so you can play on your bikes on the road. Thats all you are
    doing is playing. You are no different than a skateboarder or roller
    skater. Screwed that guys motorcycle up too.?

  4. HAPPY WHEELS! but no honestly it looked like he did it on purpose.. then I
    saw the slow mow.. and it looked like he was sleeping or daydreaming…
    bicyclist looked like he broke his back!! hope all was okay!!!?

  5. The motorcyclist didn’t do hes corners the right way. Before you go in a
    sharp corner like that you go to the right side of the lane and when you
    are at the corner, you directly hit the gas and the bike will set itself
    straight and it will go easier to the left to avoid a crash. This is very
    important. This motorcyclist did the opposite of it.

    The cyclist was not in fault.?

  6. Ahh I would’ve done the same. But I would’ve tightened my grip, ducked,
    and kept on going. Pesky biker nerds. ?

  7. Pause at 0:24-0:25, look at the first bike guy…rofl, fuck i shouldn’t
    laugh but check out his legs?

  8. Not even some 16 year old with down syndrome who has been riding for 1 week
    would have hit those guys… I actually think he was trying to hit them. He
    didn’t even attempt to slow down, and he actually got over in their side of
    the lane.?

  9. Thank God for crash helmets. That first guy on the bicycle went head first
    and hit the back of his head. Also the motorcyclist went head first too. I
    am almost certain the situation would have been way way worse if it wasn’t
    for those bash hats. People who don’t wear bike helmets are playing with
    their lives. I fractured my skull on a bike at 10 years old and luckily it
    didn’t kill me or give me brain damage BUT if I wore a bike helmet I would
    of got up and brushed myself off and went home in time for tea. Instead I
    had a joyful 5 day hospital stay where surgeons has to piece my skull back
    and fix my depressed fracture! WEAR A BIKE HELMET GUYS, PLEASE…?

  10. These motorcyclists are DARKSIDED!!!! ITS UNNATURAL, IF GOD HAD WANTED
    BIKES TO EXIST HE WOULDVE CREATED THEM!!!!!?

  11. Cyclist should wear more gear! Going downhill he can easily hit the roads
    speed limit. I dont see any motorcyclist in cyclist helmets and thin
    spandex.. I am not defending the motorcyclist it was a stupid move but the
    cyclist could have gotten out of that situation much safer!?

  12. Im a rider myself for many years now, and I replayed this video like 8
    times, and this fucker with no doubt did that shit on purpose, stupid idiot
    went straight into him without even hitting his breaks what so ever,
    somebody probably paid him to do that shit. People always do stupid shit
    for money. ?
