CCTV footage shows allegedly 'haunted' bicycle moving on its own

A driverless bicycle moving along a historic city street has been generating some heated debate online this week.
The peculiar clip - which recently went viral on social media - was captured on CCTV camera in Shambles - a historic street in the city of York, England.

It shows a regular bicycle - without rider or apparent human intervention - moving several feet down the street before coming to a standstill and eventually tipping over.

The phenomenon has elicited some conflicting opinions, with some arguing that it could be evidence of paranormal activity and others dismissing the entire thing as a hoax.
"York is a great place for unusual occurrences and Shambles is a place like any other," ghost tour owner Mark Graham told The Press.

"Ghost stories are like jigsaws - there's a piece to show the full picture. I don't think (the riderless bike) is anything at the moment."

"That seems to be an isolated incident - it may be linked to some others and I would urge people to come forward who know anything."

It could've been pushed off camera. Bikes can ride at least a little ways by themselves after being pushed.

Why would someone leave their bike somewhere without the kick stand down?† And--I couldn't see the pedals moving, plus they zoomed in at the end--100% hoax.

I think you need to send it in for calibration.

Nah, if you look closely it's the entire town paranormally moving underneath the bicycle, not the other way around.

Is it just me or has the frame rate been slowed down? Seems more likely that someone gave it a nudge, and gravity/slope did the rest.
