    Attacked by a runner!

    Ever had a altercation with someone while on a ride?
    I was riding around the neigborhood. a runner was going to step off the curb into the street right into my path. I gave him a Yoo Yoo! shout. He didn't care for my Yoo Yoo and started yellng things. so I stopped and I may have egged him on, so when I tried to ride away he grabs my sweat shirt and throws me to the ground! Big mistake on his part. he was still attached to my bike when it hit the ground. So I grabbed the bike and slammed him with it several times, he was still there so I kicked him about three more times to get him off me. You can say he got the worse of it. bleeding from the face. me and the bike no damage! Don't be messing with mt. bikers!! I will protect myself.

    Umm yeah. Ive done some dumb chit in my life but sure as hell never bragged about it. I hope the OP is not expecting anything in the way of affirmation.

    Wow, never heard of anything like this that was so violent. I would have just ignored him. It must have looked like a geek fest. A goofball in a jogging outfit with a nerd wearing a helmet clutching a bicycle exchanging blows. I don't ever recommend doing anything like that.

    did you guys read about how the jogger grabbed his shirt and threw him to the ground? someone said ignore him? thats funny.

    OP - you prob should have left out the part about bludgeoning the guy with your bike, but i bet it felt pretty good. you may or may not be a dick.

    He stopped and egged him on.

    TSounds like there was multiple ways this could have been avoided. Flip him the bird and keep on riding!

    I have been in a confrontation with a jogger before. I did not egg him on, he did not attack me and everyone went on with their lives.

    If I were you I would delete this post. It makes pretty good evidence in a criminal case. Bragging about beating someone probably won't go over very well with a jury.

    youre right, my apologies to LenzRider, i was thinking ignore the guy after the take down.

    this is how i see it:
    OP egged him on - should have ignored him instead, but I cant blame him for being offended and looking the jogger in the face.

    jogger grabs shirt and throws OP to ground - any kind of rights and wrongs are now thrown out the window. attacker must be taken out or OP can be seriously injured.

    OP brags about it on a forum - not cool, give mtn bikers a bad name but makes a great thread.

    Its not so bad. Now if you had urinated on him while he was down, that would have crossed the line.

    OP could claim self defense if the runner did grab him and would not let go.

    Unfortunately, sometimes you don't have a choice but to react this way.

    Good job. I am a big believer in trying to walk away but if someone stops me I will do what I have to do.(including beating them with my MTB.) Personaly, I totaly approve. You have to draw a line and don't let people cross it. History is full of perfect examples of what happens if you don't. But... Like I said in the first sentence, I am a big believer in trying to walk away first but once forced into a situation it is totaly OK to go all out to end it.

    In the op's words, "I egged him on". The op should have got his ass kicked for acting like a total DB.

    Hmm, I'm pretty sure that all, if not most have had some kind of situation with people, some people just s@ck, add to that the added adrenaline from exercise and it's inevitable. I don't really care what people feel they have to say, like yelling at me, or calling me names, I know who I am, but pick up your hand and you've just crossed the line. I don't think, once he grabbed you, that he shouldn't have a lesson coming his way, but using your bike and kicking him while he's on the ground bleeding seems a bit harsh. Guess you felt like you needed an advantage, or an ego boost. Why else would you post this? Maybe like AZ said, use your purse next time. 2 wrongs don't make a right, and your egging him on, IMO, just shows a lack of confidence and maturity.

    Hmm, some great points here all around. Personally I try to be proactive in my approach with joggers. I always attack them all first before they can even think of starting anything with me.

    (only exception to this would be the guy who runs around a local mtb area naked. Rule #1 in life: never fight a naked dude, especially if he doesn't have clothes on)

    I can't believe how many people are coming down on the op! The other guy was way out of line from the get go, both literally and figuratively. If I try to give someone a heads up that they are about to get hit and they berate me for the warning, I will respond in kind. If they then assault me, I will also respond in kind. It sounds to me like all the people accusing the op of needing an ego boost are trying to boost their own ego by telling us how superior their character is compared to the op.

    Do you really know that?

    For all we know, the jogger might just have been startled by the yell and the OP passing close by and may have thrown a "Whoa, nice driving, moron" as a reaction, making the OP stop, turn and start the Taxi Driver routing "Are you talking to me? Are you talking to me, M.F.!!".

    If the jogger kept yelling all sorts of nasty stuff after the OP I'll cut the OP some slack for responding, but it might just as well have been a single "moron" call and the OP going way too sensitive and stop to pick a fight.

    Good job..eff-whatever the nay sayers are saying.. if you dont defend yourself who's gonna do it for you? Of course, like anyone does, try to pick your battles as wisely as you can. Speaking for myself I would not book such nonsense and would have beat a hole in the guy...If events transpired as you described, then that runner was deliberate in his actions and initiated the assault!

    All joking aside, there's three sides to the story... his side, the jogger's side, and what really happened.

    I can definitely tell who is passive, and who is aggressive by peoples responses in this thread. I didn't think there was anything illegal about having "words" with someone. The runner clearly started by assaulting him. It's clear that he was leaving the scene, and instead of being a man he grabs him from behind as he's leaving? I think we should have a poll just like the local radio show around here, "who's the D****E B*g"

    If it were me though, I probably would've just kept on riding and THOUGHT about doing what the OP did...

    Is a bike considered a deadly weapon?

    The jogger started the "physical" altercation. The jogger is in the wrong.

    We have yet to hear from the jogger. Just sayin. For all we know this conversation is taking place on the joggers forum with a slightly different slant.

    We likely never will hear from the jogger so we have to take the OP's word on it.
