Hi Schmunks, just paid, I've paid the extra for the ladies Tank instead of the monaco, just to confirm, can we go with the large tank instead of the medium monaco.
Many thanks and sorry for changing so late in the process.
Morning all, started biking to work again to get the legs going, on my way home a motorist dangerously cut me up causing me to go into the incoming traffic I had to squeeze between the motorist and an oncoming van, I saw her pull out into my lane and she didn't even look right before turning, I had a feeling she would do it, and gave a bit of space, if I hadn't she would have driven straight into me. I made the driver aware of my feelings with a few expletives and gestures which seemed to shock her, as I seemed to have appeared by magic an inch away from her wing mirror,she responded by swerving towards me and give me the finger before speeding off.
I have been cycling on the road most of my life and have had a few near misses and a couple of minor incidents. I think over time cyclists develop a skill of spotting possible dangerous drivers, I tend to look at drivers faces at junctions, you can tell if they have seen you or are just looking for a gap to whiz into I also look at wheel positions of cars at junctions if I'm passing, they will turn the wheels ready to jump out of lane again looking for a gap, I had never thought of any of this untill yesterdays near miss, I understand that we all make mistakes on the road, I've driven home from work before without remembering any of the journey, its easy to switch off , what worried me was a less experienced cyclist may have been seriously injured, even worse, and I know many of my friends and colleagues have recently got into cycling.
