Re: Two serious rear ends in three months and it's not me

That's serious bad luck, you could cycle for years and never be hit or hey can all come at once. I was 8 yrs a cyclist before my first off with a car, recently have had 2 in 4 yrs. After that a second one I did question ever getting back on a bike again and when I did was nervous approaching that j...

Re: Two serious rear ends in three months and it's not me

Hi, Then make sure that you raise the issue of your long-term cycling being affected. You might get flashbacks, sleep disturbance etc - perhaps get checked out for PTSD, and mention counselling to overcome your now natural fear of cycling. Have you ever had a flash back, I am just curious :?: Yes I...

Re: Two serious rear ends in three months and it's not me

Yes I will be seeing a counsellor this time. My sanity really does depend on cycling. My whole life has been changed by it. So yes. This may seem a little fatalistic especially since I have a wife and children whom I love very much. But I may well rationalise by saying to myself that if I die it wou...

I accepted the pre med offer which was 1000 for personal injury. I will go post med this time.

Re: Two serious rear ends in three months and it's not me

Yes I was talking to someone the other day actually just after my accident to the actual nurse who was looking after me in a and e. I was just saying that both the people who ran into me were regular people not swivel eyed cyclist haters. To which she asked "do many people really hate cyclists?...

Re: get off your phone!!

Please see my post on my accidents. But I feel this practice is so widespread, that almost all rear ending accidents can be blamed on it, although it's impossible to prove in my case. I use the brightest most conspicuous lighting possible on my bike and I've been rear ended twice in three months . A...

Two serious rear ends in three months and it's not me

I just cannot believe what has happened to me. Back in December I was about to turn right into a junction and some old lady in a Peugeot 106 just drove though me like I wasn't there ( I run a dinotte 300r rear light which was angled down and on medium setting). That nearly killed me . I hit her wind...
