Watch This Mountain Biker’s Incredibly Close Encounter With A Black Bear

Now that black bears are out gentrifying the suburbs of New Jersey, that means there are none left in the actual forest, right? No…not exactly, as one mountain biker recently discovered.

While riding through a wooded area, this cyclist got the surprise of a lifetime when — you guessed it — a black bear suddenly jumped right in front of him. Check it out above.

PS. Can I just say that I think he handled it pretty well? I would’ve ditched my bike and scampered off in the opposite direction screaming my lungs out. (Note: I am not the best camper.)
