A mountain biker in France has earned over 1 million views and coverage in newspapers such as the Daily Mail
for nearly crashing into a group of students on an urban downhill run.
The mountain biker who goes by FroFox on YouTube, was riding down a stair set in Bloise, France, and didn't see the group of students sitting on the stairs. Unable to stop, he shouts at them to move and is able to narrowly avoid hitting them, riding over a handbag instead. Surprisingly nobody was hurt and the group of students don't even seem that annoyed, laughing it off after they realize nobody is hurt. Skip to about the 1-minute mark to see the incident in question.
The rider in question definitely got lucky here and if there's a lesson to be learned it's that if you're going to ride in public places, make sure that it's safe to do so before you drop in.
