VIDEO: Kangaroo Jumps Into Cyclist, Rider Doesn’t Flinch

Adelaide cyclist Michael Bland had a lucky escape when a kangaroo lept from the roadside and brushed past his helmet as it flew through the air. Holding his line, Michael kept the bike upright and continued unfazed as the ‘roo landed on the centre line and hopped away.

The freak incident occured on Frank Barker Road in Humbug Scrub on Sunday. Captured via an on-bike camera, the footage was uploaded to social media and has attracted views & attention from all around the world.
