The start of my day was going so well. I had enough Costa points for a free coffee and pastry and the weather was still nice. Then on the way to work, my luck ran out I got pulled by the police. Actually hang on, lets restart this......My day, blah, free coffee blah blah, rode like a f-ing twat, got pulled rightly because I was a danger to myself and others. Yeah, that pretty much sums it up I think. I pulled onto the dual carriageway and then undertook a series of vehicles, one of which was a police car. I was selfish, stupid and deserved it. Simple as that. Not much else to say really. Got a ticket and as my licence has been totally clean for three years I was recommenced for a driver awareness course which will cost me £110. Lesson learnt...I hope.
My name is Matt Brown and I'm a UK journalist formerly based in London, but now calling the South of England home. I've been riding bikes since 2007, but got hooked straight away. Nothing gives me the feeling of freedom, even when stuck in a city. In 2010 I became a RoSPA gold rider, but when it comes down to it, I'm Just a normal man, riding his bikes as often as he can.
