Clarkson gets on his bike for Top Gear

MOTORMOUTH Jeremy Clarkson (inset) is forced on to two wheels for his latest Top Gear challenge after years of grumbling about cyclists.

The presenter pulls on his hi-vis jacket and helmet before tackling the streets of London as he and James May are tasked with shooting a safe cycling public information film.

And Clarkson is given a taste of the difficulties of pedalling around the city when he has a hair-raising near miss with a bus.

The pair take a short tour of London's streets on a fact-finding mission before making their own film which they present to Olympic cyclist Chris Boardman as well as officials from Westminster Council.

Their experiences will feature in the edition of the show to be shown on BBC2 tomorrow at 8pm.
