THIS is the nail-biting second a bike owner discovered himself in a race in opposition to time after pedalling into an empty tunnel – and straight in direction of a dashing practice.
The terrifying clip – which was uploaded to Fb by Jedson Gil Miranda – was shot within the picturesque Mantiqueira Mountains in Brazil.
It opens with Jedson, who’s with a good friend, casually choosing up his bike and shifting in direction of what seems to be a abandoned practice monitor.
He then pushes it to the suitable hand aspect of the rails and begins to biking alongside barely rocky floor contained in the pitch black tunnel.
Jedson – who has a GoPro-style digital camera strapped to his chest – is heard chatting away to his companion as they cycle into the darkness.
Nonetheless, he quickly catches up with one other bike owner who’s clearly already scrambling to show round.
Jedson continues to pedal for just some seconds extra earlier than he too rushes to show round.
He ditches his bike and makes a mad sprint for the tunnel entrance by foot because the sound of a practice horn reverberates behind him.
Seconds after he’s made it out safely, the practice, from the MRS Logistica freight firm, is seen dashing out.
Felipe Vieira, who’d accompanied Jedson on the experience, was already exterior and protected.
As quickly because the practice departs, Jedson runs again into the cavernous tunnel to retrieve his bike which is miraculously intact.
The two mates then furiously pedal to the opposite aspect, the place Jedson, respiration closely, takes just a few seconds to assemble himself.
“We’re very sorry,” he wrote alongside the video in his Fb put up.
“I do know that we had been fallacious and that we had been reckless, the railway tunnel was by no means meant for use to cycle or stroll,” he added.
He has since posted different photos of himself during which he highlights safety indicators alongside trails for the eye of pedestrians and cyclists.
In the meantime Felipe posted a batch of images of the 2 mates on their outing on his personal Fb web page.
He made no point out of their near-death expertise, writing as an alternative,: “One other Saturday with 100 kms travelled.”
