The unnamed woman, from New Haw in Surrey, was caught riding her bike between junctions 10 and 11 on Wednesday, August 6.

She began pedaling on the hard shoulder of Britain’s busiest motorway until she was stopped by police and escorted onto a nearby, safer road.

It is not the first time that people have been spotted cycling on the London ring road this year. Indeed, there have been five reported such incidents since February.
