So I was cycling back from Sainsburys tonight. The roads were dead. I was on a large roundabout that is poorly lit. I had my 4 AA, 4LED front light on flash mode, and a rear 5 LED light flashing. I was on the roundabout and two cars were coming on to the roundabout. The first squeezed out in front of me, which took all my attention. The car behind suddenly slammed his breaks on and there was a couple of seconds of tyre skid as he almost drove into my side.
It was all very strange, it happened very quickly and by the time I had realised what had happened it was over. At first I thought he did it on purpose to give me a scare, but after I wildly gestured to him, he pulled up next to me and said the old classic “Sorry mate I didn’t see you”.
Stay safe guys
