Near Miss This Time
Last time this happened I got wiped out, but it’s too long ago to remember exactly when this happened (OK, it was fifteen years. But that would mean that I’m . . . . older than I feel). If you’re in the US, read ‘right’ for ‘left’ here:
Riding along this morning at a reasonable pace into the wind, I noticed a van passing me slowly as we both approached a turning on the left. As the back of the van drew level with me, I realised that he was indicating to turn left! Sudden braking from me, followed by the driver realising that he wasn’t quite alone on the road saved the day - just.
Obviously I’m not lit up like enough of a christmas tree - I have a very bright rear light on my bike, and always wear a day-glow top that’s covered in reflective tape.
What more should I be doing?!
