Fucking lorry drivers, specifically the one who whilst we were on holiday last week was entirely unaware of the width and length of their vehicle and when overtaking me (very closely to start with) then veered across so tightly before he had got past that he crushed my hand between his wagon and my bar end and nearly dragged me under his wagon (all about about 20mph), thankfully (I am a better bike handler than I thought) I managed to keep it upright although I have been left with cuts and bruising to my right hand and a very high heart rate. Sadly I didn't get his details as I was too busy keeping it upright but a nice torrent of abuse about the driver from the following van who checked I was Ok!

Whilst the media and the government are doing a sterling job of dehumanising cyclists at the moment, please remember that they are human beings and someones son/daughter/husband/wife/father/mother and not just collateral damage in the desperate fight to get somewhere 10 seconds quicker....

Fooking hell, that's some scary shit there Horlock. Hope it hasn't dented your confidence too much/given you nighmares.

I'm OK thanks, a bit nervous but managed to get out with a mate on Sunday which helped, really appreciated the effort he made coming up for a ride and natter! 

What with the missus having a big health scare at the start of the month (all OK now), then my mum dying mid month and finally this August was a complete wanker of a shitshow, hopefully the shit happening in 3's is true.
