Just thawing out.
Someone suddenly pulled out of a traffic jam to park on the other side of the road while I was carefully filtering this morning. We collided and I took out her wing mirror and hub cap. I think the fact I was rolling fixed stopped me bouncing off as I continued pedalling through the impact and it kept me in control. She was lovely. Her daughter was in the car so once I'd stopped shaking I assured the kid I was ok. No serious damage to my bike and none to me so I told her not to worry. She gave me an apologetic hug and we went on our way.
Then the old 'thundersleet' journey home. The cycle superhighway through Stratford was just flooded with icy water. Not lovely.
Felt attritional today. 4/10 cos now I'm toasty and I didn't break a leg.
