Years ago I was on a raod bike going on the road across Epsom downs that bisects the golf course. Next thing I knew there was a massive bang and I realised that a golf ball had hit my (brand new) front wheel. The golfer in question was laughing when I walked up to him. He wasn’t when I demanded the money for repairing my wheel (threatening to break a club helped him decide).Posted 5 years agoHandsomedogMember
I’ve been shot at with an air rifle – hit the frame just behind my leg without doing any damage. I can’t say I hung about.
My wife got completely pelted with snowballs last winter whilst riding back from work – she had to ride past a school at kicking out time and got stuck behind a bus. I didn’t laugh…honest 😉Posted 5 years agodebaserSubscriber
Passing through Niddrie/Bingham on the Innocent cyclepath yesterday I had the unerring feeling that the lads playing golf on the playing field had just acquired a new target for their practice shots.
Fortunately their aim was keich, but a few came a bit close for comfort.
What have you had launched at you when out on the bike? Funny, dangerous or otherwise. What is it that makes cyclists a target for this kind of crap?Posted 5 years ago
