Unless you are saying it was a cyclist who through the concrete, I can
see no connection to cycling.

I can relate to a concrete block being dropped on your vehicle.
Many years ago I had a large road cone dropped on my vehicle while I was
on the M3.

It smashed the windscreen and stayed there, the safety bag also went off.
It's difficult to see where you are going with an air bag & a road cone
in the way.

I managed to pull onto the hard shoulder but nearly hit a police car who
was writing a ticket for another motorist.

He radioed for someone to get to the overbridge but there was nobody there.

There was a school nearby and it was chucking out time, so you guess who
threw it.

Manslaughter (can you not read?).

A rope stretched right across Egrement Promenade? It must be sixty feet
wide between possible anchoring points and the rope would be very
visible at normal approach speeds.

As it happens, I distinctly remember that cycling was banned on the prom
(yes, all the way from Seacombe to New Brighton) when I was a boy.

Did Merseyside Police ever manage to trace the alleged prankster?

Originally treated as murder.

Are you claiming it didn't happen?

wide between possible anchoring points and the rope would be very
visible at normal approach speeds.


At night?

Do your own research.

That hardly matters.

Not at all.

I am at least as aware as you of the regard in which cyclists are held
by the majority of people.

It must be sixty feet
wide between possible anchoring points and the rope would be very
visible at normal approach speeds.


At night?


Don't cyclists use their low powered version of headlights at night, then?

Or doesn't it matter whether or not they do use lights because they
stare at the ground below the front wheel in an effort to achieve and
maintain speed?

As it happens, I distinctly remember that cycling was banned on the prom
(yes, all the way from Seacombe to New Brighton) when I was a boy.

And?

It was unjustified and all that, but I'm really not that bothered about
the case.

One might have expected yopu to be a bit more exercised about it.

But clearly not.

Have a problem with women, do you?

Why is it a weapon when police say evidence points to it being
accidentally thrown up by a passing vehicle? It may have fallen from a
passing vehicle too, in which case the driver could be prosecuted, but
not for assault.

And what does it have to do with cycling?
