Bradley Wright-Phillips decided to take a ride on bicycle and it wound up as the goal of the week Monday.

The Red Bulls forward’s goal was honored for the week ending Sunday, May 21.

Wright-Phillips scored his fifth goal of the Major League Soccer season and 74th of his Red Bulls career in the 39th minute of the 1-1 tie with Toronto FC at Red Bull Arena Friday night.

After a foul called deep inside Toronto territory, Sacha Kljestan sent a free kick into the penalty area. Fredrik Gulbrandsen headed the ball from the right side of the box to the left side to Wright-Phillips, who scored with an over-the-head kick.

“I never plan to bike,” BWP said. “I just tried to get something on the second ball, I’m not very big, I’m not very strong, I never really win the first ball so I try to let the distraction be the first ball and just try and get on the second and Freddy well with a great header back across goal so I just tried to just be there really.”

Wright-Phillips, who became the third Red Bulls player to earn such honors, broke a three-week stranglehold New York City FC had on the goal of the week.

GOAL: BWP's Half-Bike
