Incident type: Close call
Location of incident: Spicewood Drive, Winston-Salem, North Carolina 27106, United States


A group of 4 cyclists (camera on front cyclist) were descending a very steep hill when a Honda Pilot approached at a very high speed (>60 MPH). The vehicle decided to pass around a blind corner, crossing a double-yellow line for a significant amount of time. When the vehicle passed the lead cyclist, we were all going over 40 MPH and in the center of the lane. The the apex of the corner the Honda driver saw oncoming traffic and swerved back into our lane while hitting their brakes. They were very fortunate to not slide off the road or overcorrect back into the oncoming traffic.
