In Glasgow, no less! Skelped by a belt, probably...

Happened to me only a few weeks ago too! As I've said, I am 5ft 1 and
look like a young girl when in my kit. Sick idiot came and kicked me
for not using the poor excuse for a cycle track.

Is there any followup to that story? Have the police caught anyone?

Well, I had to look for images that looked like the car and they have
circulated those around the local police. Got the standard letter with
the crime number etc.. All a case of waiting now. No further kicks
since then.

I used to commute through that bit of Glasgow (Cadder) around that
time of night. It always felt like a good idea to move through at a
smart pace so that by the time any of the local neds saw me I was
past. Three teenagers once tried to block the canal bank near there to
stop me. I've no idea their motive and didn't wait to find out. I
accelerated through the gap and brushed past them and away.
That said I think unprovoked attacks on cyclists like this in Glasgow
are very rare. Hopefully this guy will be caught.

You got *kicked* by someone driving a car? I have heard of someone getting
*punched* by the passenger of a vehicle while cycling but not kicked!

Well, no, the driver got out and kicked her. The scumbag.

Or as the media would report it, a cyclist was in a kicking with a car.

They were rare a few years ago, but they have certainly intensified
over the last few months in terms of severity. I ain't been out on the
bike for a few weeks now. It really is getting worse out there for us
cyclists.
