|278||I pulled out from the lights at Britomart, heading south ahead of a car stopped there. I pulled into the main flow of traffic because of parked cars on Adelaide.

|274||This is part of the official southbound cycle route (avoiding the motor way) and it's a terrible spot. Riding south, it's a two lane road. The right hand lane turns into a turning only lane into South Road. Locals know this and pick their lane early, visitors are totally surprised and flabbergasted: and act accordingly. As a cyclist, riding on the left of the left hand lane in order to meet expectations to be on the left means a relatively dangerous crossing maneuver to end up in the turning lane.
Today, because traffic was heavy, I slipped into the turning lane a little earlier than usual, approx. where indicated and in the last few tens of meters before the turn was overtaken on the left and right simultaneously. Needless to say, that is scary.
I don't know why motor vehicle drivers are in such a hurry to not have a few seconds to give a cyclist a bit of room.
This intersection needs some attention, especially because it's part of the official way out of town for bikes.

|237||Driver fails to give way to me at roundabout, and then a couple of hundred later starts intimidating me with his horn, wanting to overtake through a pinch point on a zebra crossing.
Elderly driver of White 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe seems to not be familiar with how to give way at a roundabout, nor how to safely overtake cyclists without intimidation over a zebra crossing.
Lots of nice hand gestures as he passed - he did seem very angry.
I think he took exception to me asserting my right of way over the roundabout, and I assume then expected me to stop so he could overtake? Puzzling, aggressive and unskilled driving.

The fence is tight, i was travelling at speed and I turned too sharp, the result was the front wheel washing out and i went over the handlebars onto the road. Bruised and concussed.
