While traffic is very often a pain for motorists in London, the roads can be even more of a struggle for cyclists.

And one irate rider who was clearly fed up with people walking in the cycle lane in the city centre decided to take action in a very unique way.

This rider decided that a bell wasn’t sufficient enough to get the attention of pedestrians milling around the cycle path that was part of his route.

So instead he employed a car horn - with hilarious results.

The video starts with the man whizzing through a busy road in London on his bike before turning into a cycle lane which is blocked by a group of people walking in front of him, causing him to stop and angrily gesture.

Cutting to a new scene, the cyclist is seen enthusiastically holding up an air horn which he then attaches to his handlebar using thick black tape.

Testing out his new instrument, the cyclist peddles quickly down a bike lane where he can see a crowd of people blocking his path in the distance.

To ensure that his route his clear he holds down the air horn causing them to leap out of his way, clearly startled by the blaring noise.

The man continues to use his new device as he rides through the city with similar results.
