Officers posted a picture showing an orange-clad rider with a large food backpack on the M5.
Amazingly the cyclist was unharmed – despite cycling along the hard shoulder during busy Easter Monday traffic.
Gloucestershire Police Special Ops posted the image – suggesting it was a Just Eat worker.
They said: “Up there with things not to do on the motorway, especially on a busy bank holiday. JUST DON’T! Rider dealt with appropriately.”
