I only rode to work two days last week. On Friday, I took a longer, hillier route home. Most of the ride was enjoyable.
I did have a bad encounter on the ride home. Some jackass threw a wooden plank out his car window at me. It missed, and I noted the last part of the license plate number (couldn’t read the first part), and the make and model of the car.
Several minutes later, I saw the same car approaching from behind. I stopped my bike in the middle of the lane, and got off the bike. They stopped some distance away. When traffic cleared, they gunned it and went around me. I got a good look at them. It was two young guys.
I called the police, waited around for the police to show up, and filed a complaint. I have a feeling they aren’t going to pursue it at all. They would if it were bricks being dropped from overpasses though.
I think they live near there. I’m going to drive around down there. If I find the car, I’ll leave a note on the windshield. That might make them think twice about doing it again.
