Kangaroo almost takes out cyclist in near-miss

Updated: 


This is the moment that an Australian cyclist went head-to-head with a kangaroo.

Cyclist Peter Roberts caught his friend, Michael Bland's, near miss on his rear-facing GoPro camera while they were cycling through One Tree Hill, near Adelaide.

Incredibly, Bland managed to duck in the nick of time and the kangaroo only clipped his helmet as it went flying over him.

It landed on its feet on the other side of the road and disappeared back into the shrub. Sharing the footage, caught during a ride yesterday morning, to Facebook, Roberts wrote: "Today's excitement: Attack of the Roo!!! Note. No animals were harmed in the making of the video. Michael Bland however needs to buy a lotto ticket!"

Since the clip was uploaded, it has been viewed more than 33,000 times and shared almost 300.
