    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.

    Protect? More like assault. Do you use meth?

    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.

    cheers

    Its not so bad. Now if you had urinated on him while he was down, that would have crossed the line.
    Grit, spit, and a whole lot of duct tape!

    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.
