A cyclist caught a near miss with a car at a Hammersmith junction on camera before launching shouting profanities at the motorist.

The cyclist can be heard accusing the driver of knocking him off his bike, but the clip has divided opinion online.

The commotion was caught on the cyclist's helmet camera and the footage shows the bike overtake a line of cars stopped in traffic, using a chevroned central section of the road.

The cyclist appears to be heading down the road at speed when, as he approaches a junction, a white car pulls out, heading straight towards him.

The cyclist is peturbed, shouting expletives at the car.

The video was uploaded by Youtube user Two Wheels Good on Wednesday (March 30). The caption reads "Apparently my invisibility cloak is working well".

Support for driver...

But, since the footage appeared online, many internet users have come out in support of the driver, believing the cyclist to be at fault.

One viewer wrote: "So there's a clearly marked bicycle lane where you should be and yet you don't use it and then you b***h and moan.

"You're illegally over taking and there's no way a motorist is going to see you on the opposite side of the cars you're illegally over taking."

One of the comments pointed out: "Ironically, at the exact point the car pulls out there is another cyclist coming the other way wearing a high vis jacket, using the cycle lane and travelling at an appropriate speed on a busy road."

Another added: "Interesting, firstly a bike lane, have been put there for cyclist, he is not using it, secondly, how fast were you doing and also you can not tell me that you did not see that car, as that car already was committed in his manoeuvre, you should have gave way to him."

The Highway Code Rule 63 states: "Use of cycle lanes is not compulsory and will depend on your experience and skills, but they can make your journey safer."

...and for the cyclist

Viewers were split though with some siding with the cyclist: "White car's fault, end of. Cyclist had every right to be where he was and had the right of way, being on a main road.

"He took the turn in a very unorthodox way onto the wrong side of the road and into the path of oncoming traffic. [sic]"

Another responded : "The minor road 'Auriol Road' is two-way. If that is the case the driver makes a completely illegal manouvre , the cyclist is doing a perfectly UK legal manouvre."

In Isleworth in January, cyclists swapped places with lorry drivers to experience the roads from each other's point of view .
