The incident took place last week on a road in Shropshire in the mid-morning

A cyclist has been accused of punching a driver in the face last week in a vicious road rage attack on a road in Shropshire after the driver had overtaken the cyclists.

According the the Shopshire Star, the man in his 60s, driving a Vauxhall, was stopped on Main Street in Worfield when the incident took place, having previously been driving ahead of a group of cyclists.

The attack took place between 10am and 10.10am on Tuesday, November 10.

Once he had stopped the car, one of the cyclists is alleged to have spoken to the driver before proceeding to punch him twice in the face and causing a cut lip.

The cyclist, described as a white male in his late 20s to 30s and with a muscular build, is said to have ridden off in the direction of the church in Worfield.

He was reportedly wearing a grey or white shot-sleeved cycling top and black gloves.

    Wow, are you a dumbbell.

    The police do nothing and don’t care. If a driver threatens your life, you have a duty to smash his face

    Agree, it does seem odd and I’m not condoning violence at all but I can’t help thinking there’s more to this story

    There are cyclists, i.e. Us, and there are people on bikes, not necessarily cyclists. There is no excuse for this behaviour. If the motorist was driving dangerously, then his number should have been taken and reported to the police. There were plenty of witnesses.

  • It seems a little odd that a cyclist would just pick an argument with a driver and punch him for nothing. There must be more to this story, surely. It normally takes some seriously bad driving to get this type of reaction. If the cyclist has done this for no apparent reason, “thanks” for giving the rest of us more bad press, just what we need!
