Who hates bicycle guys?

The car driver was using his car as a weapon.  The cyclist was standing up to a bully.  

There is no excuse for what the motorist did but the cyclist is an idiot. He was the only one who stood to get hurt and if the driver had really used his vehicle as a weapon, he could be dead or in hospital. If you are holding people up, get out of the way as soon as you can, that goes for  motor vehicles and cyclists and pedestrians.

Get a "Metal Mullisha" sticker on your rear window.

But if you really want to be an asshole, become a "coal roller".  These turds have gone the extra mile to make their vehicles obnoxious. Not satisfied with just noise pollution, they have also modified their trucks to create air pollution.  That's right, they can apparently inject extra diesel somewhere into the system, such that their truck can create a giant black cloud of toxic smoke behind them at the press of a button. Often the target of these smoke attacks are pedestrians, cyclists, or Priuses. I got "coal rolled" onced, while riding my bicycle in the bike lane along a busy road. I am sure the drivers felt like real super-heroes.  I remember the truck, and if I see it again I will customize it with some interesting modifications of my own.

Oh oh :(... My son has a truck exactly as you describe, including the  Metal Mullisha and Coal Rollers stickers. The black smoke is produced from oversized injectors, it's the over pushing of the throttle that produces the smoke.

It's funny really as he is one of the more polite and courteous drivers out there and would sooner push his truck past a cyclist then blow smoke at them. His daily runner is a '97 escort :)

On topic though, what the cyclist was dangerous all right. If I was the driver of the car I'd probably shut it off, relax and let him/her get it out of their system, done it a couple times in other situations and it doesn't take long. I'm a relaxed driver and traffic doesn't bother me.

Bikes are annoying but City bus drivers are hands down the worst. They cut you off or force you into another lane. Once that signal goes on they are moving and they don't care what is in their way

Buses are a freaking menace. They don't even look around to see if there might be someone where they are going. They don't think twice about blocking a huge intersection for a light cycle or five. Ugh.

During the last year of the show Top Gear ( the real one not the one with joey) they address this very issue. Check it out.

Hello, Argus! Last year, since the COVID-19 global pandemic lockdown, many people had become really crazy. I don't see any reason to do that did this bike guy. Sometimes I feel like the bicycle guys are just assholes in most cases. If you were moving for the middle of the road and didn't let the vehicles faster than your bicycle pass you, this is a dick move. Anyway, I hope this guy got a good bicycle insurance UK company to fulfill his damage in this situation.

Because they can think they're being environmentally friendly they think they're better than people that drive cars. 

I had a kayaker pull that on me once when parked at a fuel dock.  The only way out was in reverse and I asked if he could please move so I could leave but he didn't and wouldn't and made an issue out of it.

Fortunately I have engine driven fire hoses.
