I haven't been in a bike accident in over 20 years. Someone did bump me from behind when I was young, but it was a collision that took place at a slow-speed, and thankfully I wasn't hurt apart from a few scrapes. This event has only caused me to be more vigilant and careful when I'm on the road.
Thanks god. The collision took place in very low speed.

They might have got a good laugh out of it, but I hope you got the license plate of the car and either found out who they were or reported the incident?

Cycling is dangerous enough these days without having to also contend with di**heads like that.
Cycling is not at all dangerous if you have learnt the proper skills.

Of course its dangerous. You might have been cycling for many years and learned all the 'proper skills' as you call them, but if you're cycling through a busy city centre, you can't control what other road users do, so being on a bike puts you more at risk than being in a car.
