I have been held up several times by pedal cyclists & it can be a pain. The bikers could have pulled over & let the SUV through. However, I would like to know where the SUV driver was going that meant waiting a few minutes would spoil?

Impatience & lack of courtesy is rife on our roads today. They are a very dangerous place to be.

This event wasn't that at all. These bikers should all be run over. Yes, bikers aren't given enough consideration on the road all too often, and that's a big problem. I respect bikers - well, bikers that don't routinely put their lives and others in danger. You get a large crowd of young testosterone dripping young men together. . . any manner of idiocy is possible.

I understand the knee-jerk reaction in defense of this crowd of bikers, but. . .

Back to helmet cams - it was the footage from those cams that revealed what actually happened. Thank goodness, for justice will be served. Well, to a degree (some may escape Police involvement, and for some that might be a lucky thing, as they may relative innocents that won't join in such an event. Others will live to tempt fate on another day.)

I wouldn't defend the actions of either group in this. Both behaved like hooligans. It's such a "not my fault" society we live in. Heaven help us!

Oh, BTW, it's a good bet that a fair section of the bikers were not "testosterone driven YOUNG men" either!

That good bet would seem to be negated by the facts.  My son is a biker, and I live where this occurred.  You have NO idea what you're talking about, respectfully.
