...said the myopic Micra driver through her window as I cycled home on Wednesday after work.
"yes you expletive well did!"
Classic example of crap driving. She overtook 3 of us to turn left. I was at the front and the first I knew of what was going on was when a car is driving into me. Somehow, and I don't know how, I managed to stay upright, but only just. I was convinced I'd be having a trip in an ambulance, and even remember thinking 'how will I / my bike get home from whatever the nearest A&E is?)
I really can't fathom how I got away with it. My mate described the contact as a 'hefty thud', although that may have been an involuntary bowel reaction!
Further on in the ride (doing the long 36 mile commute home that day), I realised that my hip was aching a bit. Still does a little 3 days later.
Anyway, my reaction at the time was to swear furiously! I stayed on the bike and there appeared to be no damage to me or bike (bike is fine ), so after swearing I simply rode away.
I've just uploaded the GPS track from the ride and I can see the collision on it!
