I'm expecting to someone to say this has already been posted but I did search and couldn't find.

Apparently the evening standard posted the number plate of the car. And the Police say the owner was not present during the incident but hasn't given up the driver yet.

Watching both videos, I think its a typical 'im a cyclist you cant come anywhere near me in your car on the road' and he has lashed out at the car. Then, st him self when he saw a load of meat-heads that got out.

I also find it very very very hard to understand how he gave a detailed report of how close the car was, and how he heard them being abusive yet the cyclist didn't recall or hear anything being said to by himself or his friends. I don't think that is how an argument works.
Quite possible. Although speculation.

However, even if that was the case. Given how the meat heats behaved, you could also speculate they were driving dangerously in the first place to cause the cyclists to react.

Surely the engine (cyclist) needs to breathe? wink
They've not been through an emissions test, so they'd be charged based on engine size. Not great for fattys.
Or people that pass alot of wind.
