    When he waited patiently through a pinch point, then overtook me with plenty of room.

    I was so surprised I nearly fell off!!

    I knew that was coming, even before I opened the thread!
    I just suffered a close, impatient overtake from a Skoda driver, while the driver of the following BMW gave me lots of space.

    Don't worry, equilibrium has been restored. I nearly got clipped this morning by an Addison Lee driver cutting across me for no apparent reason whatsoever. Clearly there is no new directive on being nice to cyclists!

    Cab driver @ St Pauls stuck his hand out of his cab to warn me of a potential hazard of another cab pulling out yesterday and I gave him a big smile,although I had seen it.That smile must have been an (awful) sight.
