One Auckland bus passengers has captured the absolutely mad moment a cyclist decided to ride his push bike on the Northern Motorwary towards the Auckland Harbour PEAK hour traffic.

The video was captured by Chase Manning on Wednesday at 5pm as he was sitting on the upper deck of a bus heading north towards the bridge.

While gazing out the window, Manning "suddenly saw cars ahead of us start swerving into the right lane".

While he was cycling, cars were yelling at him, he was yelling back defending himself.

"Our bus had to swerve and change lanes suddenly to avoid hitting him."  

Manning reckoned the cyclist probably made an honest mistake and took the wrong turn which led him onto the motorway.

A police spokesperson told Newshub police had received multiple reports of the cyclist, but a few minutes later, they were informed the cyclist had left the road.

It is illegal to ride a bike on a motorway, an offence punishable by a fine. However, the police spokesperson said she didn't have any information about a fine being enforced.
