Cyclists and cars do not mix well! Twice I have suffered damage to one of my cars due to idiot cyclists. They require zero qualifications, basically anyone capable of peddling can get on the highway with no outlay other than the bike, no road tax or insurance!
The first loon jumped a set of temporary traffic lights and switched to the pavement which was downhill in my direction, I was the final car in the row travelling uphill towards this bike which was now speeding down the pavement on my left.
I needed to turn left into a side road and at this moment was totally unaware of this madman a few hundred yards up steaming down the pavement, next thing I know as I a have my nose into the sideroad, indicator flashing, this dipstick has realised someone actually wants to turn into this little road which 'no-one' ever uses but is going so fast he can't stop! He and his cycle smack into my front wing, up onto the bonnet and there was this terrific moment where his face is squidged up against the windscreen and we are looking straight at each other....til he slides down and off my aforementioned bonnet.
I had to ask him where he came from, it felt like he had fallen from the sky! He reluctantly admitted what he had done, told me his huge butt dent would polish out (it obviously did not! £500 later....) and limped away pushing a buckled squeeky bicycle
The second one was a foreign farm worker from a local farm, pulled out from a garage forecourt straight into the side of my car, spun down the side inflicting a £2000 repair and then ran off!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry to go on, but I feel your pain!
