Jeremy Clarkson, 59, addressed how much he hates cyclists in his most recent video posted on his Drive Tribe website and YouTube page.
The Grand Tour host went on an epic rant about cycle lanes, which comes amid Mayor of London Sadiq Khan’s plans to introduce more protected cycling infrastructure in the capital.
Sitting at a table,, Jeremy began to vent to the camera: “So this is Holland Park in London, one of the most beautiful streets in London because of all the trees that line it, but the Mayor of London wanted to pull them down to make way for a cycle lane.”
Expressing his point of view very clearly, the star added: “Well he can f**k off.”
“The man’s obviously deranged,” he continued. “You can’t pull trees down so that people can cycle.”
Jeremy said: “I know that cycle lanes now are seen as the most single important thing in the world, but they can f**k off, they’re not. We live in absurd times.”
The former Top Gear presenter then turned around to point out there were many more cars on the road than cyclists.
He said: “It’s a lovely summer’s day you would image people would be cycling, nobody wants to, you’re sweaty, you smell. We’re living in stupid times.”
Jeremy said in the video the quote to introduce the cycle lanes was £42 million for four and a half miles.
“They can f**k off, thats £10 million a mile!” He exclaimed. “That’s the good thing, the council has told hem to f**k off, they said no.”
“And the mayor’s arguing about it,” he added.
The scheme, part of Mayor Sadiq Khan’s Transport Strategy, included 4.7 miles of cycle paths between Wood Lane and Notting Hill Gate.
Back in June, Kensington and Chelsea Council said it would not support the plan over congestion and air quality concerns.
The plans form part of Sadiq Khan’s aim “to encourage walking, cycling and public transport and make London greener, healthier and more pleasant,” TfL’s website states.
His Transport Strategy also aims to “reduce car dependency and the health problems it creates”.
It adds: “So that 80% of all London trips are made by foot, bicycle or public transport by 2041, up from 64% today.”
The petrolhead told his 7.2 million Twitter followers to not worry about receiving “rubbish” A-Level results as he uploaded a picture of what he’s been doing this summer.
He captioned a photo of a grand estate: “A level results a bit rubbish? Don’t worry.
“I got a C and two Us and I’ve rented this place for the summer.”
