Coming up to work before turning left onto Fleet Street, helpful man walks out without so much as a glance into the [very busy] cycle lane, he gets clattered hard by a rider coming the opposite way to me. Cyclist goes arse over tit which looked painful, I came steaming in with nowhere to go except ride front tyre into the other bloke who is on the floor. Ouch.
Also, there were at least two people in shorts and short sleeves, with no gloves. It genuinely baffles me. It was bloody freezing!
