The man, who was joined on his trip in Chelsea by another cyclist, was apparently trying to click his feet into his pedals when he crashed.
His friend tried to warn him the car had stopped but it was too late and the cyclist slammed straight into the back of the car, in perfect view of the camera.
The unnamed filmer said: ‘Whilst driving through London a cyclist pays too much attention to clipping his feet in rather than the road ahead.
‘Result: he freewheels into the back of my car, amusingly faceplanting my rear window, just to the left of my camera.
‘He wasn’t hurt, except his pride, and my car wasn’t damaged, though it does have some amusing face and handprints in the road muck.’
