Idiotic cyclist ‘with a death wish’ rides across entire M60 carriageway

A stupid cyclist has risked her life by crossing four lanes of the busy M60 carriageway.

Dashcam footage taken by a motorist shows the cyclist, believed to be in her twenties, drifting through the entire carriageway at the junction of the Greater Manchester ring road in Stockport.

She races down the motorway and gestures to the drivers to give way as she cuts through the lanes towards the left exits.

Louise Kay, 48, who was heading back home to Audenshaw, had to slam on her brakes to avoid ramming into the cyclist.

She told Manchester Evening News that the near-miss incident happened last September and she has now shared the footage on Facebook to warn drivers of the potential hazards they can face.

She said: "It was just unbelievable, there's no other word for it. It made my blood run cold.

"I could see her out of the corner of my eye so started to slow down.

"And she just waved at me and carried on riding right in front of me. She honestly must have had a death wish.

"I shouted at her but she had her headphones on and was just completely oblivious.

"She can't have not seen the signs and got confused as there's one up on Bredbury roundabout and another on the slip road itself and it's a good old run down to the motorway.

"Of all the places to do it as well with it going into the fast lane there."

According to Highway Code rule 253, a bicycle is listed as a prohibited vehicle and it is illegal for a cyclist to be on the motorway.

People who violate the rule can be handed an on-the-spot fine if caught.
