A furious cyclist who claimed he was almost run off the road has been charged by police.
The rider was cycling along a narrow road in Macmasters Beach, on the NSW Central Coast, on August 9 when he was overtaken by a Toyota driver.
Footage captured on the bicycle's rear-facing camera showed the Toyota swerving out from behind the cyclist and narrowly passing on his right.
'Took this to NSW Police and I ended up getting booked for not riding as near to left of the road as possible,' the cyclist explained.
