Probably the scariest moment in the 21 months (wow, has it really been that long) since I started cycling regularly: I got overtaken by a silver BMW driven by..... my wife :sad::eek::smile:

It's an experience I never want to repeat :thumbsup:

Wanted you to confirm that the indicators weren't working?? :sad:

My wife came past me today on the way home from picking the kids up. I was worried about her going into the ditch opposite she had given me so much room.

For once, though, I didn't mind so much kids hanging out of a car and shouting at me. ;)

Yeah, it's not so bad in this case :biggrin:

I had my daughter sticking her tongue out at me :biggrin:

Hehe, I scared my dad recently. He's a painter and decorator in a big white van so I shouted 'Bloody van drivers!' as I passed him. He turned round ready to shout before clocking me. He'd given me lots of space but it was worth it for the look of shock.

No. He may have been here before me, but mine's a self-portrait, his is just a picture of Shrek ;)

I've cycled at a fair pace up to an ASL before, just near home (the one in my vid where a Merc driver overtakes pointlessly (and badly) as I'm doing 20+mph and the lights are red)... only to hear a car approaching from behind and then beeping at me. :smile:

I was turning around to scowl at them for beeping for no reason... only to see my Wife waving at me. She nearly got a naughty gesture before I clocked who it was! :smile::biggrin:
