This is the moment a cyclist had a near miss with a truck on a Co Donegal road.

The footage was uploaded by Irish cycling website, The Sticky Bottle, and it shows three cyclists travelling along the road.

As they cycle, an oncoming lorry crosses into their lane and narrowly avoids ploughing into one cyclist..

He came within inches of the lorry which appeared to cross the white line.

The cyclist filmed the footage via a camera on his handlebars at 9.45am on Friday morning.

He said he was cycling in the middle of the lane because there was a beginner cyclist beside him.

He can be seen wobbling on his bike and very nearly loses his balance soon after the lorry passes.
