I often feel much of the bad feeling between road users can simply be avoided by the person who has made the mistake just to put their hands up and say sorry. So there I was riding down Carlton Crescent towards London Road here in Southampton, a road I can do 30 down as theres a slight downhill slope. However imo its too bendy to do this, so I take it easy. There is one last side road to my right coming up, Carlton Place, and a van is in the process of turning - I'm far enough away to let him carry on but as I draw within 10-15 feet of 'Place an LGV driver pulled out on me. Cue hammering on the brakes (cyclocross cantis at that, so not the stopping power I would have liked) "Woe there!!" I shout realising its a bit of a brown trouser moment. Driver and his passenger look over, horrified, and the driver puts his hand up and shouts "sorry" (hard to hear over the engine but the apology counts). No harm done, no reason that I can think of to feel angry. I just thought after - its not that hard to say sorry, and you'll probably learn a little by admitting to a mistake (where a mistake has genuinely been made). Have had another funny week tbh. This morning I suffered the frustration of sliding on rubbish and hitting my pedal on a concrete island whilst navigating a filter point (to trigger the lights over the ASL). Had one or two close overtakes that were just stupid, witness a Postie nearly get off'd by some complete muppet, and got a little frustrated with peds in the cyclelane this morning - who I overheard muttering something about winding up the cycling behind them, if my ears didnt deceive me. Gave them the evils and rode off. Oh and lastly. Standing on a crossing waiting for the green man some chavollas rolled up and started mouthing off. I just blanked them, and their insults. Didnt even bother to turn around, but the guy standing next to me with his GF got a little worried. I think he thought they were targetting him.
