Another close encounter

Idiot in a Volvo overtook me then turned left across the front of me earlier, full bore entering the junction at Owen’s Park where that kid got knocked off the other week…. I only just got a hand full of brake and kicked the back wheel into a skid to narrowly avoid ploughing into the side if him.

It makes me wonder in light of BikesnobNYC’s Tweet below, how often you come close without realising how close?

On the flip side, nearer home where I begin feeling safe, I was waiting on a red and a young kid waiting to cross shouted “That’s f*****g AMAZING that bike, seen you around on it loads!” 🙂 He aint wrong, it is amazing, and probably older than he was!
