    Very impressive but very frightening and I wonder if he has mirrors or feels invincible.

    Useful way to identify the driver fleeing the scene

    ..I was waiting for a car door to open or a spoilt hi-so kid to plough into him

    I think the Pro Cam makes it look scarier than it is. The guy is obviously an experienced cyclist. But I don't think he's in any danger due to the slowness of traffic. If you ever watch a playback of your own Dash-cam in heavy traffic it will seem faster than what your really traveling. The same applies to the spaces between vehicles. They look much closer than they really are.

    I agree with Chitty

    I agree with Chitty
    Never assume you know someone by a video.

    I actually can't stand most cyclists as they think they have the God given right to rule the road. I know the score on the roads here but I don't consider myself a 'know it all' cyclist. In Bangkok, the bigger your vehicle, the more right of way you have, so I am very aware my place in the Bangkok traffic food chain!

    Thanks for posting my video Chitty, and thanks to whoever posted the link!

    I made a load more videos but the editing was a bit time consuming, but you are all right, I did get knocked off eventually (by a police car!) 😂 Unfortunately the cam had ran out of battery so no footage of it.

    I'm out of action for a while anyway due to a broken leg (Drinking not cycling).

    You do know that if you get run over and have no Insurance no one will give a flying fuk .

    Least of all, other Ex-Pats.

    Good video mate.

    How about tackling an expressway?

    It appears like you ride like one.

    But fair point.

    No insurance ? Your not a Engglish teacher, are you?

    Would have liked to see that video and the Thai police explanation.

    Hope you was not hurt to bad. You should post a few more off your videos up here, as there's a lot of keen cyclists on this forum.

    We've just had one member cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats and there's a Teakdoor North to South Thailand members cycle ride planned at some point in the future.
    Gotta go, stay safe.

    Well done on that ride! Interesting he got knocked off by a cop as I had one pass me and turn right into me at the apartment I was living at in Chiang Mai. I met him in the elevator and I asked if he had seen me get hit. Totally denied it, but I knew he saw me as he had to pass me to turn in.
