Should have had a helmet cam then no disputing what happened.
Seems unusual to say the cyclist was pushed off his bike. Was it the vehicle or the person?

One of my grandsons had this happen in the town. But that is because the gentleman who did the pushing fancied the bike. But, a WPC with high-powered legs ran after the culprit and caught him. All praise to that lady!

Do you walk around with a camera on your head?
