The moment an angry cyclist kicked a fellow rider off his bike into the path of a moving coach has been caught on camera.

Raphael Carrondo was pushed into the side of the bus by an irate BMX rider as he was riding home to Canary Wharf along the Embankment.

He was sent flying over the handlebars and narrowly escaped getting trapped under the moving vehicle.



According to the Daily Telegraph, Mr Carrondo said: "I couldn't believe what had happened - I feel so lucky to be alive. This guy just came out of nowhere and leathered my front wheel.

"I went flying over the handlebars and my head almost went under the bus - it was terrifying."

Raphael believes the 'revenge kick' was triggered by him minutes beforehand having to slam on his brakes when the BMXer tried to undertake him as they tried to navigate safely around a parked bus.

According to the Mirror, Raphael said: "I didn't see him trying to cut me up, because I was concentrating on overtaking the bus safely.

"I had to swerve and he shouted something at me. I'd forgotten about it - that sort of thing happens all the time on the roads.

"But then he just pedalled past and smashed my front wheel with his boot.

"It was ridiculous - it's the most dangerous thing I've ever seen on a cyclist's cam, and unfortunately it happened to me. I could have easily died."

Raphael is now asking anyone who witnessed the incident to come forward.
