Well I've had a fun packed week of looking after the 4 year old who's not been well, as the wife is on nights this week

But, I've still managed to get out on the pushbike & thrash my aged body a couple of times, whilst avoiding big red vans & pensioners giving me the finger from their Merc estate.

This was after I happened to meet him coming the other way on a single track road and he wasn't prepared to slow down after my polite request

I had a good incident yesterday. There is an underpass on my way to work on a back road (A47 runs over it) and its single track. Sloped at either end. I was coming the direction that had right of way - just got to the bottom of the slope and some woman in a BMW 1 series zooms down the other way and meets me in the middle - she wouldn't budge and made me back up the slope (on my bike!) - its so steep I had to get off and push it up - I was exhausted by the time I got to the top and by the time I got back on the bike she had zoomed past - I was so angry!!

I was gonna head out on my bike this morning, but my battery was flat But i impressed myself by disabling alarm, removing battery, charging it, and replacing it, and it started first attempt New battery has been ordered cos this isnt the first time the bu**er's let me down - but it is the first time i rectified it myself, yay!!

Maybe it's just aswell i start my motorcycle maintenance course tonight, woo-hoo !!! Bought myself some lurvely black overalls to wear too - just need to scrub the garage floor with them first so they're not obviously brand spanking new, hehe!

Sounds very similar to mine! I was able to unclip from the pedals. Difference was the bloke had stopped after giving me the finger, but then beat a hasty retreat after I started to go down the road after him!

I'd already been wound up by another old geezer in a Silver Mondeo Estate on another narrow lane.

Glad I didn't have to push my bike like you did
