These sort of occurrences make me sick.

"Norfolk Nips marred by 2xassaults by motorists on cyclists. 1st incident female cyclist grabbed by throat and punched in the back! 2nd incident cyclist pushed off his bike at speed by motorist come pedestrian in Buxton Lamas. Both aggressors in their 40's. Cyclist sustained head injuries, hip and leg injury".

This is reminiscent of the other infamous Norfolk incident perpetuated by Emma Way.

    Sounds very like a series of incidents near Leicester 6 months ago. The Police had evidence on at least 4 or 5 separate incidents but didnt pursue. It suddenly stopped when a local traveller camp was forced out, but Police won't confirm (officially) any link.
  • I rode in this on saturday, was genuinely a cracking day for riding and the Nips Audaxes are really well organised.

    Shame these incidents occured, we had a fatality the weekend before on a road literally 5miles away from Lamas too
