Cycling on the Road

Now I don't normally have too many problems with cars when I'm on the road cycling somewhere, but this morning I decided that every driver should have to spend time cycling on the road, just so they know what it's like when a car gets a bit close.

It happened to me about 3-4 times this morning on one stretch, and it's scary! Car wing mirrors just happen to be roughly the same height as bicycle handle bars, so there's every chance of a car getting too close and knocking me off. Not to mention the push of air you get when they speed past, that's enough to make me wobble!

I think I'm going to start riding a little further out from the curb on that stretch, because it means cars can't just fly past.
