After riding the busy streets of Mexico City for more than a decade, one cyclist knows how incredibly dangerous urban traffic can be, which is why she bravely put herself in danger when she witnessed a dog dart out into traffic.
Like most other days, the woman was riding her bike to her second job, but unlike other days, the ride turned into a dangerous chase when she saw a small dog dart out into traffic and bravely went after it. “I have many years of experience as an urban cyclist and that’s why I had the ability, but I admit it was dangerous,” said the brave woman known only by her Twitter handle, Calaveritabike.
The 32-year-old weaved between cars and trucks as she attempted to catch the small dog, and eventually managed to corral the terrified animal towards the sidewalk until a construction worker finally caught its leash. “It must be recognized that without the help of some cars, a motorcyclist and the people who tried to grab it, would not have been possible,” she explained.
The cyclist then held onto the dog until its owner caught up with them. “I did not ask for anything, I just gave the dog and I said it was okay,” she said. “I also have a dog and know how important he is to his family.”
