No one was injured in the incident, however, as you can see in the footage the cyclist had a lucky escape!

Residents in Spalding seemed to be shocked by the cyclist’s eagerness to cross.

Jon-Jo Frankish said: “It doesn’t surprise me that people bike on the pavements as there are many drivers who cut cyclists off and almost hit them.

“However, the cyclist was in the wrong for crossing the road without looking.”

Colin Recipes added: “Look closely and you will see the cyclist isn’t even in the cycle lane!

“Looks like he did a sudden right turn off the pavement coming from down Park Road.”
