Just had my first honest to doG SMIDSY, not 10 minutes ago and 2 minutes from home. I was just returning from a run up the Old Pacific Hwy and had turned onto Ryde Road, heading towards Hunters Hill. There is a fair amount of tree cover on Bonnefin Road but plenty of visibility if you stop at the Give Way sign (or slow down). I caught a glimpse of a car approaching the intersection as I was almost upon it. Just as a matter of course I swung from the centre of the lane to the right, buffering away in case they didn’t stop and making myself more visible through the movement. It’s 100% habit and today it saved me. The car (a little white Mercedes hatch back) did not stop or slow at all, it simply came straight out from the intersection and almost T-boned me. Instead swerved and crossed the centre line by about a foot, washing off speed and quickly going from their front fender to safely behind them. Thankfully the road is quite wide at this point and since resurfacing the street they have removed the traffic islands. There was oncoming traffic but I had space. I didn’t get on the horn until I’d already avoided them, but if they had been turning right instead of left I wouldn’t be typing this right now. The car pulled over and I stopped behind them. The passenger got out first, an older gent. “We’re so sorry, she’s so sorry, she didn’t see you.” I looked at him, “There are a lot of people that end up dead because someone ‘didn’t see them’.”, what else can I say? He was very apologetic; he said his mate had been killed on a bike recently, at this point the driver got out of the car too, a woman of maybe 60. She too was very apologetic, repeating the words I was just glad to be upright to hear, “I’m so sorry, I didn’t see you.” I looked at them both, nothing more I could really say, the woman had got the best wake-up she could without actually hitting anybody and she was obviously shaken, as I left they were still there and it looked like it might take her a bit to gather her nerves. I hope it makes her more vigilant, I hope it makes them tell their friends about how they nearly wrote me off when they get to bowls or lunch or wherever they were going.
