I cycled approximately 30 miles today and was loving it. I cycled from the seaside, where I live, to an area on the edge of Dartmoor (Yelverton).
I'm so happy that I'm now able to do this and I have more good than bad days now.
I was ringing my bell on the path to warn people I was behind them but on the way back a man started to move so I could cycle through (he was also on a bike with his very young family) but all if a sudden he moved into the path of my bike and went into me. My arm was grazed a fair bit but the worst thing is I've got a brand new bike, it's less than 2 months old! I was not impressed and I said to him I rang my bell and he saw me.
Fortunately there's nothing seriously wrong with my bike.
Here's a photo of me not long after the ride feeling absolutely fine just annoyed to have scratches on my handlebars.
