Torrential downpour.  It was beautiful, raining steadily,  marked by intervals of rain so hard it hurt. Im not certain what the temperature is but it was really nice that it wasn’t searing my flesh. Just a pleasant almost spring like day, in the middle of summer. So i rode as hard as i could under the circumstances, and enjoyed the looks i was getting from people in their cars as they were clearly struggling to understand why i would voluntarily ride in the rain, i was wearing a specialised kit, so clearly i was not commuting.

As i returned home i came to a light that was green i was headed north as i started into the crossing, turning left and the light changed to yellow as i was about half the way through. Some muppet in the left turn lane of the traffic traveling east decided he would ignore his RED light and turn right in front of me, missing my front wheel by inches. He was driving a silver coloured BMW SUV. I stopped my turn and carried on straight, following him into a neighbourhood. I cranked all out to catch him, i pulled along side him as the speed limit was set at 25 and began yelling at him to pull over he slowed and rolled his window down and i asked him “why are you trying to kill me?” He said “i wasn’t even close to you” I said “you’re full of shit you ran the red light, why are you trying to hit me?” he said “whatever” and started to drive forward. I started cranking again and got in front of him stopped. He stopped and i said “im going to call the police and tell them that you’ve tried to hit me while you were running a red light” he said “look whatever, call the police, im sorry i ran the light but i wasn’t trying to hit you”  i said “piss off” and rode away, while watching my mirror.

I want to go back to that neighbourhood and flatten all the tires on his SUV or maybe smash his windows. I hope he parks on the street, but i cant see that happening.
