Commuting by bike in London means that its a fairly regular experience to be cut up by a driver changing lane or turning across you without checking their mirrors first, or checking their mirrors but just not seeing you. Normally they get a few words shouted at them to point out the error of their ways and everyone continues on their journey, with a little heightened awareness or perhaps just as oblivious as before.
What is less common is to have the driver catch you up 3 miles later and apologise.
So, thank-you, Freelander driver and sorry for the swearing! 😉
