Sun is shining, nice day for a ride. Rode from Amsterdam to Haarlem. It's about 40km round trip. Great ride checking out the view, canals and windmills. Get all the way back, two minutes from my house and WHAM!. Guy cycling the wrong way down the road just turns straight into my path without looking. I can't stop in time (yes, I have brakes!) hit his front wheel and go straight over his handlebars. To make matters worse some random ped starts having a go at me for shouting at the guy. Like it's my fault! Roadie comes up and backs up my story saying she saw the whole thing and the guy was totally at fault. But the ped just keeps having a go. Verbal insults ensue and I have to decide to either leather the twat or walk away. I walk away.
Good news is only minor scratches and bike seems to be ok. Hmmm, if it's a nice day tomorrow I might ride to Utrecht?
Ride safe people!
