The incident was captured by CCTV cameras in the area.
The footage shows the man cycling towards a four-way crossing and 3 pedestrians can also be seen right at the crossing.
As the cyclist passes by the 3 pedestrians, one of them pulls him off his bike for no apparent reason.
When he gets up from the ground, the cyclist tries to chase after his attacker while the other two pedestrians linger around, the suspects subsequently fled the scene after some motorists who witnessed the incident stopped to talk to the cyclist.
