Also i did nearly ride into the back of someone. Looking back to see if it's ok to overtake the upcoming traffic queue to which the car infront appeared a bit too quickly. Quick rear wheel skid and steered out of the way. Hybrids with disc brakes do have their plus points. Especially as I went to work on my road bike.
Only 5.5 miles, so I'm always in my jeans and T-shirt with jacket. Too cold at 7:00 to leave off the jacket at the moment. And it didn't rain on me anyway I know I'll regret that last comment tomorrow when I walk to work
