I'm cycling down Roseberry Avenue and I reach the junction with Farringdon, the lights have turned red so I slow down and stop. Next thing I hear is a screech of brakes and melting tyres followed by left foot being taken from under me! No sure how or why he didnt see me stopped or why the numpty was trying to over take me on the left. Anyway I manged to cushion my fall and ended up sitting the curb in agony. He then says sorry and asks if im OK, thinking that he just made a serious error of judgement I gave him the benefit of the doubt and said "no not really I think my ankle is damaged", I look down towards my leg and as I look up he does a runner! ... Not being too far from work i decide to hobble in. Now im sitting here in the office with one leg up contemplating going to the doctors, the only problem is I know im going to get the usual "you see cycling is too dangerous and i think you should give it up" from my girlfriend if i go home...two of my bosses have also said the same.
