They say politeness doesn't cost anything, well it cost me some leg skin and some bartape. On the cycle path, see 2 women running towards a gate chicane thing and slow down to let them go through first. First one doesn't manage to say thanks or smile but at least meets my eyes to acknowledge my existence, the second one can't even be arsed to do that, I go through the chicane nodding my head and just as I'm thinking how fucking rude people are, my toe hits the front wheel and down I go. The only thing that could have made it worse is if I'd shouted a sarcastic comment first. Clips and straps for the sake of reference........... My days of politeness are officially over.........
