Local resident Alex Barron was driving when her friend in the passenger seat recorded the suitcase cyclist.
‘He was struggling to get up the hill and was all over the place,’ she told Yahoo7.
‘We had to pass with caution as he never looked in control,
‘Once he joined the main road I was thinking he might cause something here.’
Cyclists are legally allowed to ride with one hand on the handlebars, according to NSW law.
Riders can be fined up to $2,200 if they ride negligently, furiously or recklessly.
