A cyclist was spotted cycling dangerously along River Valley Road, swerving through traffic and cutting in front of cars.

He also could be seen cycling in the middle of two lanes with his shirt open, exposing his chest, while his arms flailed in the air or hung by his sides.

Put hand onto car

According to a video posted by Facebook page SG Road Vigilante, the incident happened around 4:50pm on Tuesday (Apr. 27) along River Valley Road, towards Clemenceau Avenue.

In the video, the cyclist could be seen riding in between the left and right lanes, gesturing with his hand at the car to his right.

As the car pulled forward in its lane, the cyclist suddenly also moved toward the centre of the right lane.

He put his right hand out and pressed it against the car for several seconds, while the car hit its brakes and narrowly missed hitting the road divider.

The video continued from a different angle, with the camera vehicle in front of the cyclist.

From that angle, it could be seen that his top was unbuttoned, revealing his bare chest, as he continued to ride along the middle of the road with his hands hanging by his sides, rather than on his bicycle's handlebars.
