Sept. 13 (UPI) -- A mountain biker recording his ride on an Alaska trail captured the moment he came across a bear sitting in the trail ahead and fell into the bushes.

The cyclist shared a video to Reddit on Tuesday -- using the tongue-in-cheek title, "There are better places to sit, bro" -- showing what happened when he was biking on a trail in the Anchorage area.

The man spots a bear sitting in the middle of the trail up ahead and stops so quickly he falls into the bushes.

The cyclist wrote he "said some inappropriate words. Slowly dragged my bike backwards. And then sprinted in the other direction."

The cyclist said the bear did not appear at all concerned with his presence.

"It couldn't have cared less about me. I've never felt so insignificant and been glad about it," he wrote.
