I've had some close calls in my time as a cyclist, but on the way home from a ride tonight (literally about 10 mins ago) somebody clipped my bars with their mirror, and made it very obvious that it was deliberate (gestures that I shouldn't be on the road and that I should move over etc...)
I should point out that I was riding on a main road (about 100m after the cycle lane down the side of it inexplicably stops) with my wheels less than a foot away from the yellow lines. Everyone else managed to get past without issue, I spotted but this guy (with his family in the car) out of the corner of my eye approaching and appearing to come towards me. He then clipped my bar with his wing mirror, not enough to knock me off but certainly enough to shake me up (although in my book, any physical contact with a car while you're on a bike is too much!)
I shouted simply to make him aware of the fact I was there, thinking maybe he'd just not seen me, and that's when the torrent of abuse started.
Unfortunately, I don't have a helmet camera or anything, but I did get a note of his reg number and description of the car.
I'm not sure whether to just let it go, or whether it's worth reporting. The problem is, without any evidence it's just my word against his, but the guy's clearly got a problem with cyclists on the road, and I'm not sure I can let that lie.
Any suggestions? Other than weeing in his shoes
