    I am sorry, where did I say that the driver was justified in trying to kill someone? Most of humanity behaves rationally most of the time, but there are some absolute psychos out there, both full- and part-time, and this needs to be said. I don't feel like I have any anger issues, alfreddo, certainly none that I can express by touch-typing on a laptop, so I'm gonna gently suggest (passive aggressive much?) that that my aggression, self-righteousness and whatever else it is you don't like about me is all in your own head. But if it makes you feel better, just ride up next to me and shake your head, go ahead, knock yourself out.

    I have no clue what I'd done to wrong him, only thing I can think of was I shook my head at someone playing obnoxiously loud music. I did shout much abuse after his attempts to knock me off my bike, but I wasn't exactly going to thank him.

    Well, then, we can assume it was him who was playing the loud music. While loud music can be tedious, especially if it's not the sort of music you like, there are much, much worse things in the world, and your recherche discomfort was only going to last a few seconds. Essentially you went up to a complete stranger who you knew nothing about and by shaking your head, publicly challenged them. Then, when he didn't whimper sorry and immediately turn the music down -- this is what you wanted, isn't it, or why did you shake your head? -- and became aggressive, instead of quickly weighing up the situation and letting him get far away from you as possible, you shouted at him and cycled up to him again. And once again, you ended up out of your depth, but much further in the shit this time as he was actively chasing you, and it was only luck that allowed you to escape. So, what can we learn from this?

    And carry a d-lock, but only for locking up your bike. Do not consider it as a weapon, certainly not against a car, as you will only make tiny dents at best, it will still be able to run you over, and having a weapon to hand will probably only make you even more cocky and get you into even more trouble.

    As a member of the cycling community I believe that signalling and moving slowly to the right without looking would be perfectly safe if ever driver drove as they should.

    Practice drinking more. Or take some tweezers to pick the broken glass out of your liver.

    Do not carry glass bottles in a bag strapped to your torso, get some panniers.

    You could try going without the germolene for a bit, it doesn't do much anyway, and you may have a mild allergy. Ask at the pharmacy.

    Looks like there's room for everyone as it is, and a cycle lane would cause merry hell up at that fork left ahead.

    1. Reduce the area's disparities of income, or;
    2. Don't ride around on something worth more than their family's monthly income, or;
    3. Learn kung fu.

    Last night fully wiped out a ped, at about 18/19ish mph. Silly sausage stepped out, clocked me, froze, then BOOM!

    He froze, and yet you couldn't swerve around him? Ed may be (i.e. is) right.

    If a slower cyclist ahead is indicating a left turn from the primary position, which side should you pass them on? Or should you stop behind them and wait for them to complete the turn?
