1602.22 PINCH POINTS

It's been a while since I've had any issues on my commutes to work. The biggest issue is the traffic islands on the main road towards Sheffield which cause 'pinch points'. Quite often you get motor vehicles racing for the gap which is quite frankly very dangerous for me and other cyclists.

See what you think on the short clip below posted on Instagram (warning, it gets a little sweary).
I'm not a cycling 'vigilante', I'm just trying to travel by bike. I have the camera for my protection following a couple of accidents.

I watched a programme last week showing the same thing, I thought it was called Caught on Camera. I don't blame you for the language! Hairy and scarey!

I saw the same programme, makes my blood run cold to watch some of those.

some people are just idiots...

...here in Chelmsford we have cycle lanes on some of our paths.

That poor cyclist who got knocked off his bike by the idiot opening the car door without checking, he was lucky!

I think those are a council cop out for them to say they are providing cycling infrastructure. But that's for another blog post I think...
