VIRAL VIDEO: Deer Knocks North Bay Cyclist Off His Bike

SAUSALITO (KRON) — A North Bay cyclist is recovering after he t-boned a deer that crossed his path during a down hill ride in Sausalito.

And…it was all caught on video.

“I don’t remember it, I landed on my back, and hit the back of my Giro helmet, which probably saved me from serious brain injury,” says Silas Patlove.

Patlove’s bike-mounted camera captured his winding descent along Alexander Avenue when out of nowhere a deer leapt over a guardrail right in front of him.

“Although I had a mild concussion with a bit of memory loss around the event, I am very grateful to have escaped feeling only a little banged up,” he said.

“I cannot speak to the deer’s injuries.”
