Cyclist shoves wheelie rider out of the way and gets instant 'karma'

People have been left divided over footage showing an altercation between two cyclists.

Cycling in a city is rarely fun at the best of times. You have to deal with bustling traffic and other riders who are also itching to get home after a long day at work.

Now. If I ever see someone performing a wheelie in a cycle lane, my first thought is generally, 'You're stupid, what if you fall and crack your head open?' But then again, if that's how some kids get their fun these days, so be it.

However, one cyclist was left far from amused and decides to shove the wheelie rider out of the way of those taking the cycling lane more seriously.

And social media users have since been left split over which cyclist is truly in the wrong.

In the video, the wheelie rider glances back - surely seeing the other cyclist coming up behind? - but continues to perform their tricks anyway, even rearing further into the path of the upcoming rider.

The cyclist dressed in blue and beige soon approaches and decides to give the wheelie rider an abrupt shove out of the way.

But alas, the cyclist's plan is rapidly thwarted as the force of the push causes their wheel to veer into the curb and then are sent rolling to the floor - ouch.

Even more frustrating for the cyclist is that the wheelie rider is quick to put out their foot, preventing a fall and remains standing.

But which rider is really to blame for the incident?

Social media users have flocked to the video - posted by the account I'm Just Bait - to debate over which rider started the incident.

One user argued that the blame lies on the wheelie rider: "Wheely kid was crossing into helmet man's path though," they said.

Another agreed: "To be fair he was moving into his way, basically defended the line too late."

However, one user argued: "The guy could see the kid and had the opportunity to voice he is behind him or just be an adult and slow down - he wanted to be a big man and face planted."

"The embarrassment LOL. Just stay on the ground at that point," a fourth said.

Others backed up the cyclist who gave the shove.

"Are we all watching the same video here, kid definitely swerved into helmet man's path and if anything helmet man stopped a more severe crash by pushing the kid rather than just crashing into him," one said.

A final social media user simply wisely resolved: "Every negative action has a consequence, case and point."

What do you think?
