Almost got mowed this morning
A "psychic"(?) hunch saved me. A steady stream of cars was overtaking me as I was approaching the rail bridge in Chertsey. Suddenly I felt very uneasy and did something I normally do not do--I cycled around a drain but on the inside (i.e. inches from the kerb!). I barely started this maneouvre when I greyish car overtook me so close it must have been a couple of inches away from my handlebar. Had I not done this strange maneouvre and kept cycling at about a 'stretched arm's length' away from the kerb then I am sure I would have been knocked over at 20mph (the car was doing around 40mph). And just to clarify this: he could not have possibly seen me going around the kerb earlier --it just happened too fast (thus I didn't "invite" him/her to overtake me). The most annoying thing is the road is quite wide!!! i was inches away from an accident!!!
