Last week, I was on a pedestrian crossing in Brighton Road, Surbiton, and narrowly avoided being hit by a speeding lycra-clad cyclist who did not stop for me, unlike the bus in one direction and cars in the other.

It was difficult for me to avoid the cyclist because I have a disability. Had I been more disabled, or elderly, the accident would have been extremely serious.

As they passed, the cyclist shouted at me “I don’t have to stop” and also waved a fist at me.

I would like to thank the kind bus driver for taking time to check I was OK and offer support.

The cycling lobby has just created an opponent, thankfully an unharmed one.
