A bicyclist tried to ride a Citibike through President Obama’s motorcade in Midtown, only to be tackled to the ground by cops, a video posted on Instagram reveals.

Daniel Provencio, 59, was riding a Citibike south on Park Ave. as Obama’s motorcade came east on 50th St. Wednesday evening.


Police had the intersection blocked off but a seemingly oblivious Provencio tried to roll through it about 6 p.m.

A cop grabbed Provencio and knocked him off the bike onto the ground, then fell to the ground himself. A helmeted cop roughly grabbed Provencio’s arm and twisted it behind his back.

Cops rolled Provencio over until he was face down, stuck a knee in his back and cuffed him as a Secret Service agent walked over to observe.
