Think I jinxed myself by posting here. I got my foot run over by a BMW this morning while I was sitting in stopped traffic (correctly positioned too.) :crying: I saw the car there but wasn’t expecting it to suddenly try to squeeze alongside me with nowhere to go in front, so it looks like the sixth sense needs some work still.
Pretty sure it’s just bruised. Glad I had proper bike boots on- I wouldn’t want to see what it’d have done to one of the scooterists I always see wearing high heels. Can still feel it 8 hours later though.
yep one definitely develops sixth sence, since we’ve got cyclists that cars so violently overtake sometimes - i’ve now started thinking about how other car drivers feel and try to predict what they’re about to do, my own lifesafers have reduced though because of the number of **** i’ve got in my head to think off, i’ve gotta get myself upto scratch with that even though i do ride to and back from work swiftly and not hanging about i know there’ll probably be idiots going above 50mph…
however i give my hat off to a black cab for being an unpredicatable twat…so i’m behind him to the right of him, he’s slwoing down and indicating left and there are people on the left waving at him so i think “oh ok, so he’s going to pull over to the left because he’s indicating left and slowed right down and there are people waiting for him…” hehe…yeah right…in my head i was already thinking i’m going to pass him quickly now but then i thought nah **** it i’m on a work bike i can just pass him slowly…and right at this minute the ****** quickly indicates right and turns at the same time in my head i was like “mate you’re lucky i’m not on my bike as me and my bike would probably be sitting on you lap now”… hehe funny thing is that i didn’t get all rude and aggressive i didn’t even get scared it was so quick but i heard some sighs from people waiting for the cab…yep that gave them a fright
