someone ran in to me. "
"The lady on the bike was going that fast, she ran in to me and then went
over the handlebars."
(obviously a made up story since cyclists do not go over the handlebars)
"She then gave me a lot of abuse " (what? a cyclist giving abuse when they
are in the wrong? surely not?)
Re: This guy has been mown down by cyclists three times in three months !
I can vouch for that! It happened twice in my teens.
I rode the 30 miles to Ainsdale with a few mates, and we had a fast run
along the sands to Southport. I hit a patch of soft sand and the
front wheel turned sideways and bent backwards below the axle.
There was nowhere for me to go except over the bars...
It needed much tramping on the rim and use of a spoke key to straighten
the wheel enough for the journey home.
The second occasion was when racing with a mate and I touched the kerb
and the bike dropped from under me. I went over the top and
somersaulted, breaking my collar bone when I landed.
But we never rode on pavements and we stopped at red traffic lights,
doing a standstill without putting a foot down.
My main complaint about bike riders is when they whip on and off between
pavement and road. They need culling...
