Cyclists caught on the M6 during morning rush hour

Dash cam footage has recorded the moment that two cyclists were seen travelling down the hard shoulder of the M6 during morning rush hour.

The footage was recorded in the West Midlands on the M6 southbound between Birmingham and the NEC by photographer, Mike Jones.

The two hooded cyclists appear to be escorted by a traffic officer while overhead signage warns motorists to slow down for pedestrians in the road.

Mr Jones told the Express and Star: “I was driving down the motorway and could see something was going on on the hard shoulder, holding up traffic.

“I moved over to the slow lane to see what was going on and I saw children or small adults cycling along and being pulled over by police.

“I thought, what idiots are cycling down the motorway at 7 am in the morning.”
