Incident #2 - the roads over the dam are very narrow, with on that section pedestrian refuges about 2m long by 1m wide and an entrance to the footpath around the lake on the left, which is where most of the pedestrians were - so I rode on the right, past some pedestrians with a couple of other cyclists a few yards behind me (the ones the white van is squeezing past). A couple of stills to illustrate this follow. Realistically to pass a vehicle even of the size of the red car earlier than where I moved to the left means stopping with your wheels against the kerb, and leaning away from the car so as not to scratch the paint with your pedal, so this really is a place to assert one's road position. (The mike didn't pick up the stream of invective from the driver!)

Incident one, not many of us are arguing against you at all.
Incident three, thats borderline.......................but to be expected from your modern lazy driver..........we make allowances that the cyclist has to do what is best for survival...................the driver left it too late for sure.............what does the highway code say..........you have priority
P.S. I always say we survive to live another day
