Cycling into uni to hand in a report this morning, the roads were very wet and slippery and added to that I was very very tired and so taking it rather easy. Discretion being the better part of valour and all that. After entering uni through a lovely swoopy corner, the road continues downhill for 100 meters or so before there is a not very mini RAB, which is a huge, slightly raised, dome shaped white painted circle. Obviously in the wet this expanse of sloping paint is to be avoided, not only because of the wet paint, but also the copious amounts of diesel that get spilt there by the busses that bump over it at full whack. As I did my swoopy thing round the corner a girl on a Carrera Subway got up my inside (not very hard as there are 2 lanes in the same direction at this point) though I was very surprised to see her come past. I was taking it easy, but wasn't slouching too much at this point - so she was going at a very impressive pace. Just as I was thinking how cool it was to be overtaken by another cyclist who knows what they are doing, I realised that she was shaping up to cut the corner too fast. It was almost with a sense of deja-vu that I watched her brake, lean in, hit the RAB and have the bike dissapear from underneath her. She hit the ground pretty hard, and slid quite dramatically before stopping. Obviously I went to see if she was ok, luckily she was, but was definitely hurting badly and will be very stiff for a few days. I've e-mailed the uni again to say that this RAB is dangerous to cyclists - I see a cyclist crash in the same way 2 or 3 times a month at this spot.
