An Australian cyclist named Neil was pedaling along with his pals near Prospect Reservoir in Western Sydney over the weekend when he became the target of two kangaroos seemingly determined to take him down.
“Normally we see kangaroos, but [they] never really come into close contact,” Neil told Cycliq. “This last ride saw two kangaroos panic and turn to change direction, with one launching and landing on my front wheel.”
Daily Mail Australia reported that Neil had told his mates in front of him to slow down several times because of the possibility of a collision and then he changed lanes to avoid hitting the animal, which jumped directly at him.
Farther along on the ride, another kangaroo crossed his path, prompting him to say, “Oh, not again!” He avoided a possible collision that time.
Fortunately, neither the kangaroos nor the rider were injured in the encounters.
