Cycling in to work this evening in Hackney I was hit on the shoulder by a number of objects that had been thrown at me from a block of flats. If I had been hit in the face I could have had a really nasty accident but luckily I was able to maintain control of my bike. Over the years I have had a number of similar incidents including having bottles thrown at me, food chucked at me and footballs deliberately kicked at me while cycling. I did report one incident at my local police station where I was rather pointedly told they would not be investigating! But these yobs have a tendency to target others if they think they can get away with it. So I probably will report this latest incident. It is so infuriating when this sort of thing happens, I would be interested to hear from anyone else who has had a similar experience and any possible solutions.
