VIDEO: Terrifying Footage Of A Dublin Cyclist Getting Knocked Off Their Bike

Ouch.

Cycling in Dublin can be pretty hairy sometimes but this video shows just how dangerous it can be...

As the person shooting the video the "Cycling Dubliner" says about the incident:

Filtering up to make a right turn at the next junction, got hit by a car pulling out. I honestly expected the driver to stop, this normally occurs here. But alas the driver did not and I got smashed off my wheels. Only injuries to report are a mild pain in my shin and a grazed elbow, nothing bad thank goodness.

If you're cycling in the winter months remember to have lights, a helmet and hi-vis at all times – and drivers, remember to take extra care to look out for cyclists. Stay safe out there!
