I rode in peakhour for the first time today, both morning & evening. I don't know if it's because everyone's in SUCH a rush to get home or work, heaven forbid you do the speed limit & get home two WHOLE minutes later, but I was tailgated on the way to work & home from work. The first time I gave the dude the old look back, but he kept doing it, so to get myself out of possible danger, I ended up riding down the bike lane, just to get away from him, as I wasn't confident he was paying enough attention. *insert funny part of the story here* I was all high & mighty, so I decided to split a few set of lights later & I forgot to change down to first & stalled Anyway, on the way home, I was being tailgated again. So I, I probably shouldn't have, I putted along at about thirty, it's a fifty street anyway & the girl starts tooting at me. We come up to a round about (side note, I HATE this roundabout, for the reason below) & I couldn't even see half her bonnet in my mirrors she was so close, so I gave her the look, & said something along the lines of "Gee, so you think you've taken up enough room?" I notice she is on HER MOBILE PHONE & she starts waving at me, like I'm cRaZy or something. So I took my time at the round about, as I am HALF way through, a bloke in a four wheel drive pulls out from the left, I jump on the brakes & horn at the same time (THANKS LOZ) get to the lights & he at least apologises, to which my reply was "Not a problem mate, just take a better look next time." I was already flusted from the "lady" behind me, I was seriously considering pulling over for a smoke to calm down. Anyway, get to the bottom of Arden St & the girl behind me gets off my bum into another lane. I memorised her number plate via song, the whole way home. I don't know if it'd be worth my time filing a police report.. While I'm here I'd like to say a big fat thank you to Loz & Chengaleng for spending three hours on a Friday night hanging out with me & buddying. It's obvious already that it's done some good. & I did take that damn roundabout splendidly on Monday morning & my turning is getting much better.
