    almost a crash!

    so was tanking it along on my road bike earlier,just as i got to 40mph,a car suddenly came out of a drive,didnt have time to stop so went round and almost hit some other cyclists on the other side of the road that also came out due to a car parked there,they shouted i was a fall etc but i dont think i could have done much
    anyone else had similar problems?

    was you doing the speed limit or was you speeding?

    countless times ive been overtaken dangerously or had a near hit with an oncoming motorbike as they over take traffic on the opposite side of the road

    tbh i hate the adverts that tell car drivers to look. look and look again for motorbikes

    why dont the motorbikes wait thie turn in the traffic why do you squeeze your way through
    also i have seen motorbikes weaving in slow moving traffic i find this idiotic if i needed to slam the brakes on id hit you (motorbike)

    I bumped my head getting a toilet roll out from under the stairs... no warnings!

    lol,i did that the other day getting my shoes out from under the stairs

    cyclists are just as bad on the road, on the pavement on the road then back again

    when they cycle side by side and you cant get round them
    when your wobbling
    NO lights when it dark :x

    I done what you did but I was on the phone, it was dark she kept coming and knocked me off my bike. I got a new one out of it though. To summarise no you couldn't have done anything else. Hope you were wearing a helmet, I wasn't at the time but wear one now

    Well tbh any accident would have been your fault - if you had been going at the limit you would have had more time to react

    fair enough, just sayin you can have no complaints and cant see how you can say 'couldn't have done much'...maybe drive slower lol :):thumbsup:

    I know what your saying, every direction seems to be uphill so its nice when you don't have to struggle when your going down hill but I don't think you'll receive any sympathy after stating how how fast you were going.

    I was speeding on the pavement after being run over on the road (thought it would be safer) a tractor came out of the hedge row (I was listening to my CD player) pulled the front brake as I had disconnected the rear as it was rubbing. I went flying right into its bull bar and ended up being thrown onto the road. Got a broken a collar bone and two ear plugs in my ear with no cable :whistling:

    That's the whole fun aspect about cycling, the best is we don't have to stop at red lights, we just go through them, a bit risky ridin on road, jump on the pavement, when the pavements crowded, jump back on road
