105033Photo #105033Pinch Point

I had a very nasty experience riding along here sometime around the year 2009.

Approaching the pinch point I decided to take the lane to make sure the lorry behind me was not going to be sharing the road space with me. The lorry driver carried on anyway and issued a prolonged blast of the horn, rather than braking. Terrifying.

Deadly pinch-points for cycling in Great Chesterfield.
