    This is my first contribution


    This lady tried her very best to get knocked down by me :blush: . There were no other cars near me at the time. I think she was looking for an insurance claim, although how she knew I had CTC cover is beyond me :thumbsup:

    Oh, don't you love it when they do that.

    Trouble is that many pedestrians view cyclists as just another sort of pedestrian. Of course, as a pedestrian I try not to walk straight out in front of someone else who is walking, I think its rude, but there you go :blush:

    with that footage she wouldn't have a leg to stand on if you hit her (especially with a new hip required).

    I'm amazed your language wasn't more colorful!... I would definately have stopped and given her a lesson in the green cross code.

    I was trying to see if she looked at you before moving off....couldnt see.

    I was once riding thro Peterboro, toward a crossing, traffic lights in my favour.
    A woman stood there...looked directly at me coming....and walked straight out in front of me :rolleyes: :thumbsup: :laugh:

    WTF are they thinking :laugh: (or not as the case may be)

    gbb,

    She definitely did see me I remember look at her and seeing her clocking me. Also as soon as she starts crossing she puts her head down and just starts running. :?:

    Oh well, at least I wasn't a bus..... :?:

    Had similar one a couple of years ago when a young lad tried to run accross in front of me whilst I was on the roadie. I ended up with cuts, bruises and damaged front wheel. Luckily he wasn't hurt but I think his knowledge of the English language was somewhat expanded!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
