Cycling back from work today - the first daytime cycle for a week - I ventured through Heaton Park.
T'was a lovely ride; still, quiet, relaxed and bathed in a warm, rich light. Very pleasant. After the park I only had a short section on the road to home and it was three in the afternoon so not exactly peak rush hour. I wasn't anticipating much trouble but trouble comes when you least expect it I suppose
Coming up to a notorious pinch point in secondary, I let a few cars go ahead, glanced my shoulder and moved out to primary to travel through the pinch and then to pass some parked cars further on. Cue sounding of horn, verbal abuse and possibly even spitting from the passenger of a car which then passed me closely a few seconds later. I would have spoken to them at the red lights ahead but they decided they were not going to stop for those. Anyway, like I said, a lovely cycle apart from that.
Now, am I correct in thinking these kind of people are called knobheads?
