A cyclist has been caught on video travelling at more than 60mph on a motorway – while grabbing hold of a van.

Police in Spain described the man – wearing no helmet and just sandals on his feet – as ‘idiotic’.

A passenger in a passing taxi filmed the incident this weekend on a mobile phone as the cyclist hurtled along the Ma-19 motorway near Palma airport on the Balearic island of Majorca.

Local media reported he was going at more than 62mph and that he was committing numerous traffic offences.

The cyclist was grabbing hold of the van with his left hand while holding on to his handle bars with the right, passing within a few feet of cars travelling at high speed.
