I’ve had a few rude encounters…

One time a wobbly cyclist (all helmet-clad and with hi-vis etc) had a go at me for overtaking him on a boris bike. He proceeded to wobble along the road and I had a fairly unpleasant exchange of words with him (which he started) that ended in him threatening to kill me, but I sped away at the traffic lights and left him for dust.

2 days ago a taxi driver tried to overtake me by being on the wrong side of the road, and had a go at me saying I was in the wrong place, and I pointed out to him that he was on the wrong side of the road and I was merely crossing the road from where the bike dock was to the correct side of the road, and then I told him to chill out because it was sunny, and asked if his passenger was happy with his behaviour. He later got stuck in a queue of traffic.

Once I was skating on the road and a stupid cyclist just ran into the back of me instead of going around me. It was on a quiet Sunday afternoon, no traffic and plenty of room to go around me, but they were trying to make a point that I don’t belong on the road on skates.

My opinion of many cyclists is very low, despite being a cyclist myself.
