WATCH: Hapless cyclist poleaxed AFTER failing to spot gate


A hapless cyclist is poleaxed after failing to spot a gate in front of him – just months after an electric scooter rider did the same thing.

The bike rider can be seen hurtling down a hill in Sheffield, South Yorkshire – straight towards a huge, closed metal gate blocking his path.

He still hadn’t seen the barrier when it was right in front of him as his eyes were looking straight ahead on impact.

The force of the blow to his stomach nearly throws him over the top of the gate.

His bike is left upside down on the ground as the man takes his rucksack off his back and groans in agony.

He then sprawls on the ground and removes his helmet as he is heard moaning in pain.

The man – clad in shorts and T-shirt – was lucky to not be more seriously hurt.

The horror moment was captured in a 26-second Ring CCTV camera shot from a neighbouring house just before 2.30pm last Wednesday.

The cycle path links the city centre with the eastern suburbs.

But in March the same thing happened to an electric scooter rider.
