It appears that motorists don't appreciate my Road Tax jersey or at least I had far more close passes today then any other day for a few months. I saw my first 'bent out in the wild. Obviously I've seen them before but this was the first time it belonged to someone I didn't know. Strange design too, very long wheelbase with what looked like a normal headtube over the front wheel, steered from underseat but the front wheel was a long way from the rider. More and more helmet wearers that don't know how to wear a helmet were out today. I blame the good weather. When people buy a helmet there should be some kind of guide that says "This helmet is to cover your head, not to stop you getting a sunburnt neck" Had another wheelsucker today too. I made a bit of a schoolboy error filtering through traffic and cut from the centre of the road to the left and ended up blocked by a van. Wheelsucker followed me d'oh!
