Police are appealing for information.

A man narrowly avoided being hit by a car after being pushed off his bicycle.

The 61-year-old was on his bike in Mill Lane, Felixstowe at around 8.40am when a man shouted at him.

The offender then pushed the man off his bike into the road where he was almost hit by a passing car.

The driver stopped his car, thought to be a blue Vauxhall, to check on him.

The offender, described as white, around 6ft tall, in his mid 20s to 30s, with dark hair, wearing a black jacket, jeans, trainers and carrying an Adidas over the shoulder small satchel-style bag, walked away with another man towards the town centre.

Police need to trace the car driver who when to the 61-year-old’s aid and are asking him, or anyone with information about the incident, to contact Pc Gibson at Felixstowe on 101.

  • Spell check won't pick it up, as it's a legitimate word. Better education might work, though [of the hack, not you, I mean]

  • Suggest your reporter learns to spell correctly or 'PUSH OFF'

  • I have always believed that pavements were for pedestrians, but now it seems that cyclists can ride on them as well. When a cyclist rushes past on a pavement (often without lights and after dark) the shock to a pedestrian can be extreme as well as dangerous. In such circumstances it is very understandable that a pedestrian would barge a cyclist off the pavement. Motorists also park partly on pavements in many areas in the misguided belief that this is courteous to other road users. All this does is to block the pavement and cause pedestrians (often with prams and small children) to step into the road to get past the obstruction. Such parking is also illegal according to the Highway Code. With the ever-increasing numbers of cyclists on our roads is it not time that the regulations were made clear to all road users? Once made clear it might then be possible to enforce the regulations.

  • Hope the gentleman is ok. Was he cycling on the pavement or the road?
