Video: Bear scare for bikers

No picnic in the woods for ambushed trail riders

T-BONING a 500kg brown bear might just be the most unpleasant SMIDSY imaginable, as these Russian trail riders nearly discovered.

Don't get us wrong, it's not much fun when a dozy driver in a Mondeo pulls out of a junction without looking... but at least they don't eat you afterwards.

Fair play to this pair of bikers for finding the funny side to this barefaced ambush.
