Rage-filled SUV driver takes anger out on cyclists

A relaxing Sunday morning bike ride turned out to be a nightmare for two cyclists in Colorado.
Riding on a small rural road in Longmont, Colorado, the two cyclists encountered a belligerent, irrationally angry SUV driver who wasn’t hesitant to show his disdain.
In the video one of the cyclists took last weekend, the driver in the Ford Explorer tailgates the cyclists relentlessly – while backing up traffic behind him – and lays on the horn for more than five minutes.
The stunned cyclists remained remarkably patient in the situation and continued to ride on the side of the road, giving traffic plenty of room to pass.
Here is how one of the cyclists, YouTube user dfriel1, described the scene:
This guy obviously doesn’t like seeing bikes for some reason since he sat behind us for more than five minutes blaring his horn…. This guy was so intent of bugging us that he backed up traffic behind him and cars had to pass him on a double yellow line. It seems he was the one obstructing traffic, not us.
The cyclists have since contacted police with the licence plate and an investigation is now underway. Apparently, several other cyclists have had similar run-ins with the same driver.
