It’s a good thing this guy was wearing a helmet (and a helmet-mounted camera).

Davis Souza was burning down the Mills Peak mountain bike trail in California last week when he was suddenly faced with a bear cub running out of the shadows and cutting across his path.

Souza flipped over his handlebars and landed with a huge “Oh f*ck!” He turned around to see that the bear was long gone – hopefully meaning it was relatively unphased by the crash.

Thanks to the joys of head-mounted cameras, the whole thing was caught on video. Souza then uploaded the footage to Instagram (below), along with the caption: “This bear came out of nowhere and was gone before I could ask if it was alright or anything... “

Remember, kids: look left, look right, look left again.
