    Hopefully the scum who did this will get cancer or die in a road accident very soon.

    That second paragraph is stomach churning. Why do people do such terrible things?

    Maybe because they are f***ing animals who should have been destroyed as soon as they were born.

    Not as serious consequences but made me angry reading this one http://tinyurl.com/2m9k9c Adult assaults a kid for riding his bike on the road instead of the pavement.

    Reading things like this really makes me wish I had a helmet cam, so at least if anyone did this they would be caught.

    What a horrible story and a traumatic experience for the guy involved. Hope that the he makes a full recovery. I also hope that the police catch the driver and passenger and throw away the key.

    People can be such idiots. I remember watching a white van chasing a cyclist down the King's Road, trying to knock him off. Clearly the stupid driver didn't have the imagination to realise how much damage they were capable of inflicting. If he had succeeded, it would have been attempted (or actual) murder.

    Horrible. hope they catch them...

    but lol at the description for the second link.

    The driver is described as white, in his late 30s or early 40s, medium build with large beer belly, with no upper front teeth, short dark hair and was wearing a brown top and three quarter length tracksuit bottoms.

    In any civilised part of the world the guy would be locked up just for looking like that, however down here in Devon its nearly accepted...

    nasty

    'What may have seemed to be a harmless prank'

    wtf?

    when I lived in Tottenham, six odd years ago, there was an argument between a car and a cyclist at the lights on Stamford Hill, the woman in the car got out and killed him with some sort of knife, left him dead in the road, never caught

    yikes

    Why am I not surprised? It should be legal to carry a handlebar mounted rocket launcher in Essex. [}:)]

    Seriously, I hope the guy recovers OK. There but for the grace of God......
