The latest video in our Near Miss of the Day series shows a motorcyclist overtaking three cyclists – at a speed thought to be well in excess of 100 miles an hour.
It was filmed by Tarik Qirem when he was riding with his wife and a friend near Hullbridge, in Essex.
On the narrow country rode, a car being driven in the oposite direction passes the cyclists then, from behind, the motorcyclist races past them, causing Mr Qirem, who lives in Rpmford, to exclaim, “F*cking hell. Jesus!”
According to Deadline News, analysis of the footage suggests the biker was travelling at upwards of 100 miles an hour and possibly as fast as 130 miles an hour.
He said: “This happened to us yesterday, I wonder if the motorcyclist would be happy with a larger vehicle passing him leaving only about three inches between us.
“Please excuse my potty mouth at the end.”
He added: “What is clear in that video is how close he is, it was a matter of inches.
