Earlier in August, Grand Tour host Jeremy Clarkson expressed his opinions on cyclists on cycle lanes in an expletive-riddled clip posted on YouTube (check out the clip at the end of this article). 

Clarkson says: "I know that cycle lanes now are seen as the single most important thing in the world by all those lunatics with five hardened bananas on their head and a little go pro, but hey F*** off they're not."

I was just coming just now into London on the A40 where they have taken one of the lanes away to make a cycle lane, massive traffic jam resulting from it and stuck in it is an ambulance. Someone is dying from a heart-attack and the ambulance can't get there because they are building a cycle lane.

"We live in absurd times, absurd."
