Watch as cyclist is savagely kicked off their bike as motorbike speeds up behind them on footpath

By Staff

A cyclist was savagely kicked off their bike by one of two people riding a motorcycle last week, leaving the victim in hospital with serious injuries. Surrey Police have now released camera footage from the cyclist, which shows the moment the motorbike speeds up behind them on a narrow bridleway and the pillion passenger deliberately kicks the cyclist over.

The incident took place at around 7.20pm on Wednesday, May 29 in Surrey, on the path running parallel to the A24 near Box Hill. The victim was riding north towards Givons Grove Roundabout when he was approached and kicked from behind causing him to fall.

The cyclist remains in hospital a week later, and is receiving treatment for serious injuries caused by the attack. The motorcyclist and passenger then left their victim on the ground and sped off towards the roundabout, before taking the first exit onto Leatherhead Road, the police have said. They are now hunting for the two people, and are calling for the public to help.
