    Car Karma

    Just riding along in bike lane between Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads (Victoria/Australia), cold rainy day head wind, three a**holes with P (probationary drive) plates think it would be a good idea to push me off my bike.

    To do this they had to move left into the bike lane, passanger had to lean half his body out of the car to push me.

    Minor crash no real damage, but I got Licence plate, description of car and reported to police.

    Then KARMA, I was up the local later, two young fellas bragging about hitting cyclist, I had a chat and asked wht their number plate was, surprise surprise!!!! same car I reported. Procedded to explain the charges that they are facing and the time to spend in jail!!! That was probably better than letting my 22 year old son and about ten cycling mates lose on them.

    Ah well another day biking!!!

    No- let the son and his mates have a go- gives more satisfaction. Unless the police ARE taking action.

    Used to be the case that if you let their parents know what they had done- They would have been back to pushbikes as their mode of transport- but In this day- their sons were not doing anything wrong and it must have been your fault.
