Cycling in Sydney Australia
Couldn't get my stuff together this morning... for the first time ever I hit a guy's side mirror when filtering. Fortunately the traffic was stationary so I could go back, set his mirror back in place and apologise. He was very sympathetic and wished me a good and safe day.
I rode off only to almost rear end a white van not 5 metres later as he stopped suddenly right at the same time I was checking over my shoulder.
I'll have no confidence for the ride home now.
I forgot pants a few times early on in my bike commuting newness.
Thankfully I worked across the road from Gowings at the time and could go and buy some more.
I've had to duck in there for a shirt a couple of times.
We all have those days, wouldn't sweat it. You'll be fine come hometime!
Yes, usually on a Monday oddly enough.
One topic hijack that I am happy about = cycling mistakes to going pantless!
We should have had this thread started around Mardi Gras.
BTW did you manage to get home without incident?
