I honestly thought I was too smart and observant and it would never happen to me but today proved me wrong. Riding at about 20mph up a 'cycle lane' on a wide suburban road, I eased off a little as I approached the back of a line of stationary traffic and a car parked in the cycle lane ahead. The traffic was nose to tail and no-one was going anywhere so I pulled round the parked car (undertaking the rearmost couple of cars in the traffic queue at the same time) Just as I got past, a white Micra decided he wasn't going to wait in the traffic queue - he was going to use the cycle lane as a short cut to get to a side street about 10 metres ahead of the parked car. I had no time at all to react - i clattered into his mirror, bounced off the side of his car and went flying... I got up thinking 'that wasn't as painful as i thought it was going to be' just in time to see the tosser drive off without stopping. A woman who'd seen the whole thing did stop, called the police and then put my bike in the back of her car and drove me and my bike to work - so BIG thanks owed there. I have a big bruise on my knee, few scrapes and bruises on my shins, ankles and hip - and feel a bit shaky. Bike seemed OK - handlebars twisted round and bizarrely my back wheel came unattached - haven't properly checked it over yet though. I know I should go and make a statement to the Police but I don't know if I can be bothered... I know the arguments FOR going down the police route but given that I am not 100% sure of the reg number is there really any point?
