SUV hits cyclist. Only this one has a video camera

Hah. I love the fact that this guy videos his bike rides. This time an SUV gave him a 'love tap' on the behind when he dared to take his lane to avoid a door­ing.

Cyclist and SUV were stopped at the time, but I ask myself: would the SUV dri­ver have done that to a car? Of course not. But some­how, it's a con­tem­plat­able act when the thing you're hit­ting is soft and squishy. Won't wreck your paint job.

And when con­fronted about his/her obvi­ous, obnox­ious impulse action, the dri­ver – far from apol­o­giz­ing – says “move over.” Astound­ing.

Ken Walker I salute you. Bon courage. To say noth­ing of sang froid. I would have been very tempted to pick up my bike and hurl it at the SUV's wind­shield.
