The D.C. Bike Party strongly advises that two-wheeled participants in its group rides stay in a group, keep a reasonable speed, and always stop at red lights. This video shows what happens when you break those rules – you get totally smashed.
The crash (which didn't seem to gravely injure the bicyclist) happened on last Wednesday's meetup, and while the original video has gone private, recently rips on LiveLeak have been popping up all over the place. Before the original video went completely private, Lia Seremetis, Founder and Head Organizer of DC Bike Party made this comment, reported by InTheCapital.
Yes this happened WHILE DC Bike Party was happening, but you might notice in the video that there really isn't even evidence of a massive group ride going on— that is because these guys were speeding up in front of the ride marshals and disobeying the rules. It's extremely unfortunate, and I hope he is alright, but this is what happens when you act like a jerk, and it just plain isn't representative of the 600 plus people who rode with bike party last week and had a great time.
The moral of the story is that if you ride your bike quickly through red lights, there's a very good chance you'll get annihilated by a car. Citi Bike riders take note.
