This is the shocking moment of a delivery rider filmed cycling on the M25. 

The footage, which was posted on TikTok yesterday (May 12), appears to show a cyclist with a Deliveroo bag riding along on the busy motorway.

The 11-second video, which has more than 1.1 million views, is captioned: “Got to love the M25.”

In the footage, the rider is heading down the hard shoulder which forced motorists to slow down from 70mph to 40mph.

A sign to warn the drivers above the motorway can also be seen flashing which reads: “Report of cyclist.”

It is thought the driver was delivering for Deliveroo due to the recognisable bright turquoise bag on the bicycle.

However, a spokesperson for Deliveroo said it has investigated the incident and confirmed the rider does not work for them. 

Some people were left shocked in the comments of the video, with one commenting: “That’s so dangerous.”

Another person said: “Luckily no one was hurt.”

Despite the panic, some others were calm about the situation in the comments section with one saying: “Imagine tracking your order and seeing he's coming down the M25 on a bike.”

Another person added: “I hope he got tipped very well for that order.”

The full statement from Deliveroo says: "We take our responsibilities seriously to ensure the safety of riders and the safety of the communities where we operate.

"We have investigated and this individual was not working with Deliveroo during this incident.”

“During the onboarding process, every rider completes a programme of road safety guidance.

"All riders are required to meet minimum safety standards and, as with all road users, they must follow Highway Code.”
