Quite close enough

I did 75km's on my own on Sunday because Jason couldn't ride and communication difficulties with Graeme meant that they rode at a different time to me. Riding close to Northgate I came to a three way stop and I was balancing waiting for the car which had arrived before me from the opposite direction to turn in front of me when he waved me through. Very civil of him and I was waving my thanks when a car at the remaining stop street decided to use his magnanimity and take the gap - right over me. Fortunately I saw him at the last second and fended him off with my hand hard enough that I could feel the bonnet buckling. I hope it remained buckled but I suspect it just popped back out. Damn moron! The rest of the ride was uneventful and very pleasant.
