Jeremy Vine, presenter of his own eponymous BBC Radio 2 show, has shared his views on cycling in a meeting with the London Assembly Transport Committee. The committee met to discuss public attitude to cycling, and the direction of the capital's cycling infrastructure.

Vine was famously on the receiving end of road rage in August 2016 while cycling in west London. Hammersmith magistrates court found motorist Shanique Pearson guilty of using threatening or abusive behaviour and driving without reasonable consideration in the incident, which Vine caught on camera and uploaded to Facebook.
