A few weeks ago the New forest sportive was sabotaged... Local news report
Today during the Dorset Jurassic beast a motorist passed a group of cyclists near Kingston , pulled over, got out and shoved someone off his bike. A local non cycling friend who was following saw it told me about it when I got back. Apparently reported to the police.
Also, Some **** beeping his horn came past shit fast less than 6 inches from my bars. No traffic on the other side of the road, so obviously intended and deliberate. And there was another similar incident on a narrow lane where a car forced its way against the cycling traffic at quite a speed, horn again, miracle we all got out of the way.
Otherwise a fun, social but tough day out. But asking myself WTF is going on.
Personally I am finding these events too confrontational. Gonna get a salsa ti warbird and eff off over the hills on the gravel by myself.
