Yes, the car doors are certainly a concern but I disagree about the overtake. The bus was, imho, too close to the camera wearer. The driver could easily have waited for the oncoming vehicle to pass and then given the pair of cyclists adequate room as recommended by Highway Code Rule 163. He didn't do so, barely crossing the central line to make allowances, so I'd complain to the bus company involved. It is just this sort of incident that is, indeed, one of the reasons why more people don't commute by bicycle.upsidedown said:Sorry Trumpettom, but that looked ok to me, maybe the camera doesn't do it justice. I'd have been more worried about ther car doors.
Just take a couple of deep breaths, shake your head in discontent. If its really bad you can shout out a vocal warning, brake and swing in towards the curb. We all know how it feels tbh.Trumpettom001 said:I was indeed going to go have a word with mr bus driver - although having said that the more sensible thing to do would be to leave the bus alone for now - and check that lil' bro wasn't going to do anything rash... (experiencing the red mist sort of incedent following a fairly benign one...)
