The first scratch marks on my new road bike!


Here are the first scratch marks on my new road bike, it does not even have a 100kms on it. Someone in a Volvo SUV decided that I need a scratch... or that he was not going to wait behind me at a red light.

Yuppers. That green circle shows the marks left behind, albeit on my hand.

Yah, too bad about the hand, but WHAT ABOUT THE BIKE!

My hand was between the bike and the Volvo, so the bike is fine. I guess if the driver really wanted to teach me a lesson he would have run me down altogether.

Sorry Steeker. It was only my second ride in three weeks and only about 4 kms from home. I went from feeling great to anger in seconds ruining my ride. Usually I insist on calling the cops, I did not want the hassle. Now I am worried that the next cyclist won't be so lucky with that driver.
