In the footage, shot on a mobile phone, two men are seen driving down a road with a grass verge and ditch on one side.
The passenger, after apparently spotting the cyclist riding ahead, says to the driver “get close to him and I’ll knock him right in the hedge”.
As the car closes in on the cyclist, he says “slow down to his speed”, before quickly adding “get him now he’s got one hand [on the handlebars].”
The man then leans out of the window and shoves the cyclist into a ditch before the pair start laughing.
Mr Vine shared 30-second clip on Twitter with the caption “wonder who these guys are”. It is not clear where it was shot.
The broadcaster’s tweet has been commented on hundreds of times since tweeting it on Tuesday morning.
One person wrote: “These people are clearly detached from reality.
“They obviously see no consequences worth worrying about from their actions… It seems like a funny game to them. Massive jail sentence required.”
Another Twitter user said: “Disgusting… that’s made me mad.”
Another added: “Could easily have killed the guy.”
