    Had a boy racer in a clapped out car beep me and swerve at me whilst overtaking, saw this in the rearview mirror. Unfortunately the video is seriously unimpressive, and I can't see his number plate.

    I'd have reported it otherwise, because there's been a number of cyclists pushed off their bikes in this bit of Kent, and at least one died.

    yep, the poor fella who died was pushed off down Shire Lane. I usually cycle down there most weeekends on my Down/Cudham loop. It can be a dodgy road at the best of times. For some reason drivers really like to speed along that road. I'm not sure why, as it's a well known Cyclists road. Saturday & sunday mornings see a heck of a lot of cyclists travelling on it.
