WARNING: This article contains a video featuring harsh language

Earlier in July, Grand Tour host Jeremy Clarkson shared his dismay and disapproval of what Formula 1 has become. Clarkson expressed his opinions in an expletive-riddled clip posted on YouTube.

Now, the veteran motoring show host shares his opinions on cyclists, it yet another no-holds bared clip.

'We live in absurd times'

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."
