    This is the moment an angry cyclist kicks out at a passing car for getting to close - but viewers were divided over who was in the wrong.  

    The incident happened last Wednesday June 26, at around 7pm on Kings Avenue in Brixton, south London and was caught on film by a driving instructor's dash cam. 

    The instructor, who wishes to remain anonymous, posted the footage online and said: 'Who's side are you on?'

    The video starts with two cyclists overtaking the instructor's car and coming up alongside a red Peugeot hatchback in front. 

    As the cyclists cross a junction, they pull slightly ahead of the Peugeot, whose driver speeds up to overtake them again.

    However, the car gets too close to the leading cyclist, and he kicks the front of the car with his right foot. 

    The Peugeot driver immediately slows their car and gives the cyclists more space.

    The driver is then forced to brake once again when the second cyclist takes a swipe with his right hand, which makes light contact with the side of the car. 

    Finally, the Peugeot - whose driver has finally got the cyclists' angry message - is seen trailing at least five metres behind the pair.

    But the second cyclist, apparently angered by how close the car got to him and the other rider, ta waves his arm in its direction - as if warning its driver not to try to overtake again.  

    The majority of the 255 comments blamed the cyclists for putting themselves in the situation.

    Glyn said: 'The cyclists caused it as they undertook the car, cyclists think they have the moral high ground and can do no wrong – but sadly most are self-opinionated w*****s.' 

    William wrote: 'Cyclists undertaking the car then trying to force the driver to move over into oncoming traffic.'
