Sunny day, no wind, definitely time to get out on the bike. Jo and I did our usual ride down North road to the bay, then down Beach road to Mordialloc. Interesting mix of barricades around Mentone since there was a triathlon running and the road had been closed, but only closed to motorised traffic! Apparently other cyclists are allowed to mix with the competing triathletes, which sounds like a recipe for disaster to me.

Fun and games started on the way back up the bay. Somewhere around Brighton we were riding with about four others, single file on a four lane road. Screaming, shouting, abuse and roaring of engine, the usual suspects go flying past. Four young guys, P-plates on the car, exaust pipe the size of a coffee-tin. The most impressive part was the front passenger half out of the window, screaming at us to “get off the f#\$%ing road”, while swinging his fist and trying to punch us as he passed! Not sure of the plate, ###-###, a red car, probably a Nissan Bluebird, but with all the badges and chrome removed. Didn’t get enough of a description to bother with going to the police, as they’ll only give me the usual run-around of requiring a full identikit of the driver — merely describing the car is never enough!
