The filmer, whose name is not known, said: ‘Whilst driving through London a cyclist pays too much attention to clipping his feet in rather than the road ahead.
‘Result; he freewheels into the back of my car, amusingly face planting my rear window, just to the left of my camera.
‘He wasn’t hurt, except his pride, and my car wasn’t damaged, though it fits have some amusing face and handprints in the road muck.’
