Thursday Video - Watch for Kangaroos When Riding Down Under

Australian cyclists passing a kangaroo warning sign
Anytime you are riding in wooded areas, you need to be prepared to encounter wildlife suddenly coming out onto the road. In our area, whitetail deer are the biggest hazard. In cyclists have to watch out for kangaroos. In both cases they can suddenly appear out of nowhere. Take a look at the video below. Fortunately the cyclist did not suffer serious injuries, but she did need eight stitches in her knee. The kangaroo hopped away, but it was eventually hit by a car and killed.
