So there I was, a week into my new regime of actually getting off my arse and moving, happily cycling along the cycle lane on my way home from work when some numpty in a 90s throwback souped up car decides he isn’t comfortable waiting behind the line to pull out into traffic but instead pulls right across the bike lane, meaning I would have to swerve into traffic to avoid him.
As Im coming up to him at quite a speed (for me) I gesture for him to pull back so i can carry on and he replies with….
“Like thats going to happen Fat F***er”
Did I slow down?
Did I swerve?
Did I f**k
Full Speed, Fat F**cker, straight into the side of his precious car.
I came away with not a scratch, and even my (very heavy duty) bike came off with no damage.
The same couldn’t be said for his precious car!!
and the moral of the story?
I may be a little bit fabulous but one thing I do know is that Cyclists use cycle lanes, not cars – and we don’t have insurance!!
