Festive 500 attempt thwarted by a driver turning left across my path. Hit the deck! A bit battered, but bike and body relatively unbroken.

Poor you MR! What you need is some of that new Pot Belge the ts doing the rounds - 40 shots of Salbutamol, a couple of Tramadol and a Jiffy Bag of some of BCs little helpers, I'll get on to Dave. Nice bloke.... Take care out there!

Unfortunately once she looked back and saw I was capable of walking to the roadside, she bloody drove off!!

Glad to read you were largely uninjured MR.  Did you get his number?  If it were me I'd be making a list of every damned thing on the bike that had collected a scuff, or had developed a tiny amount of wear.  Following your heart-rending story the bike shop owner responsible for assessing the damage, being pro-cyclist, will endorse your every whim.

Take care out there, these things travel in threes.

Glad you're (relatively) unhurt MR, I hope you cuffed the fellow on the ear? For 30p, I'll go round his house and do it for you, unless of course, he is a tad on the large side, or capable of standing unaided! Take care on those wild Tassie roads.
