A cyclist who was on a training exercise was clipped by a black BMW car wing mirror which then drove off leaving the cyclist with nasty road burns to his arms and legs. The incident happened on a rural road at approximately 11am when the car nudged the rider off his bike as he passed at speed on the narrow road.
