A YOUTUBE video has captured the moment a cyclist in the Byron Bay area has a terrifying crash.

The cyclist, identified only as Anthony, was riding at 50 kilometres an hour on a freeway near Byron, according to the YouTube video info box, when he struck some debris that was on the road.

When the piece of aluminium enters bike's spokes, the bike's front wheel collapses and the cyclist is launched over the handlebars and up into the air.

The cyclists riding with him swerve around him dramatically.

The video was uploaded to YouTube on December 31 2014.

Anthony reportedly escaped with only cuts and bruises and was up and back on the bike the next day.
