    I got tagged

    first time ever, someone threw something at me from a car while I was riding. Fortunately it was just a couple cups of ice. it does make you think...

    This is why I hate people.

    Used to get "smoked" all the time when riding on the road in FL. Real mature.

    let me count the ways I've been tagged...

    1. Hit with trailer mirror over left shoulder...knocked off the pavement onto the dirt shoulder, but stayed on the bike
    2. Spit at
    3. Hit with a passengers hand (he might actually have gotten the bad end of that deal...)

    All while riding my road bike...in Mesa....

    The weird thing is I rode for about 4 years on my road bike in Indiana, never got tagged. Been "boo"'ed a couple of times......oooooo.....you got me.......

    I think it was my second year here in AZ, some attempted to peg me with their half-filled
    Jack-in-box cup. Luckily, they were a bad shot. And yes, they looked like they were in their late teens or early 20's.....go figure.

    Ever since mountain biking, no one has got me....

    On a road bike truck with a trailer came up from behind me wnet around then pulled back in the lane and the trailer tagged me knocking me into the curb of the sidewalk, this was on purpose I could see him looking in the mirror and his budy was laughing.
    Then another time on the way back from a Mtn bike ride I was hit with a thirst buster in the thigh, left a large welt and hurt like hell, they were teens.

    I've broken several windows, taken off a couple side mirrors, scratched the sides of many vehicles with toe spikes, flattened a couple tires with a handy blade, and even yanked one ******-bag out the window. That's why it's not safe to commute...you may piss off the wrong cyclist. My wife says I'm not allowed to carry, probably a good idea for me. Stay off the pavement, stay out of prison

    Back in the 80s my dad got hit on purpose with a side mirror from some teenage punks, they laughed and yelled at him as they drove on well he got back on his bike and caught them at the next traffic light and they were boxed in well he removed the side mirror and put a dent in the door but he never admits to doing anything to the kids.

    I took a orange to the stomach while riding my bmx as kid, knocked the air out of me.

    hitting me purposely is aggravated assault with a dangerous instrument. Gives me the right to defend myself the same way.

    Oh, and no more CCW permits for Arizona.

    It's not the ones who want to do me harm I worry about . I worry more about the ones that don't know I'm there because they're too busy texting or can't see around the truck they are tailgating while riding partially in the bike lane.

    I got tagged with a cheeseburger one time back in highschool. Looking back, I regret not bending down to eat it infront of the car that gave it. That woulda thrown them off for sure!

    It happened on McDowell near Val Vista Road in Mesa (a decent neighborhood) on Friday night about 10pm. When it happened it was totally a surprise. i saw the cups fall to the ground and realized really quickly what happened, and heard a deep rumble and saw a light-colored lifted truck speed away. I never thought about catching them cause it was pointless, and other than a little wet i wasn't hurt. My first reaction was like 'cool a car actually saw me!' then I kinda laughed because i suffer so much on a long ride and have injuries from falls... a little ice didnt even make me lose cadence. As i spun on i thought well what if i caught up to them or what if i was packing, and then i realized in AZ its just as likely the other guy is packing and guns are the last thing to start pulling out over something stupid like this. If I'd been hurt I probably would feel differently. After a while however I did want to get off the road, cause i started thinking they are stupid and\or drinking, now their emboldened and might come back... I actually passed a Mesa cop about 3 miles later and told him what happened, thinking maybe they will still be in the area. What else was i gonna do? I did lots of stupid anti-social stuff growing up with cars like dragging trash bags down the street or throwing stuff at parked cars, but i never threw something at a person, so i thought at least telling the officer was the right thing to do, jic the jerks picked up their pace as the night went on...maybe he'd see the truck and be aware of them. Mostly i'm glad that in all my years riding this is the worst I've had yet.

    Guess I've just been lucky. I was riding for over ten years before I got hit with a half full cup of soda, and that was fifteen years ago. Other than the occasional shouted insults or the sneaking up and laying on the horn...that's been about it.

    A few years back our dog got out so I hoped on my bike to go find her. It was a Friday night and I was on a dark street. A pick up drove by and I heard the guys in the back shushing each other while taking aim at me. They had oranges and I was 10 feet away. I felt a few of them whiz by my face. Seriously, I was so close to them I don't how they missed. Kids!

    If it had happened a month ago you would have thanked them for the cool down and said, "May I have another!"

    Wow. It sucks to see all you who have been hit with flying objects while riding down the road. This is just one of the many reasons why I try my best not to be on the road at all...

    $600,000 and the driver did time...

    I don't know if it was a case of finding the right lawyer, the "pre- top out at $250,000 law" in Texas, or having a witness in just the right place, but a bro of mine got the mirror smack in the back while riding that I saw mentioned in one of these posts and the ******* who did it paid for it. The driver did time, most likely due to previous run ins, but he did time for the assault as well. Daniel was jacked up physically but was riding seriously again about two years later. He told me a couple of years later that if he was given the choice he would take not being hit rather than getting the nearly $1 million settlement he got (the requisite 1/3 to the lawyer.)

    These *******s that are doing these things (a bottle whizzing by my ear back in the day) are taking huge risks. Even if they miss you they can likely be charged with some sort of assault, possibly of vehicular assault, which is a criminal driving offense. My current job deals with this on driver records and my legal knowledge is limited but much worse offenses are involved when a vehicle is used as a "weapon." Fortunately the beer bottle back in the day is my only instance of [almost] being "tagged." A blase' attitude toward the offenders is not an appropriate response. Any event should be reported even if you have the briefest description of the vehicle or circumstance. I'm glad the original poster spoke to the cops he saw about it but if that happens on my bike commute I'm going a lot further than that.

    Our department at least takes these "attempt to locates" seriously. Any time I see one in my area for a vehicle or person to look out for, I make sure to get to the area as soon as I can and figure out who's doing what and why. Whether it be a drunk driver, someone texting while driving, or kids shooting pellet guns/paintball guns while driving through neighborhoods.

    Dubshooter I'm curious, are we just a vocal minority or does this kind of thing get reported frequently? Fortunately I've never had anything like this happen, a couple close calls that were accidents but nothing intentional like you guys are describing. Bummer to hear this happens more than I had thought.

    I got sideswiped on my road bike a couple years ago -- woman in gigantic black SUV with a couple kids overtook me on the left then turned right -- and some bystanders called the cops. The officer must've been warming up his teleporter when the call came in because he was there like not more than a minute after I'd hit the pavement. Anyway, yeah, he got down to the business of tracking down the driver, found her at her home, and questioned her for like 20 minutes. Really impressed by the reaction time and the treatment of the case.
    Don't be that guy! Read the forum guidelines.

    Some passenger in a car pushed my uncle off his bike while he was riding. People have gotten me with the water in their windshield.

    The intentional objects being thrown doesn't get reported as much as the car almost hitting people in the bike lanes. Especially when you get up by the northern part of the city where it's open roads and the road bikers are out. People just driving in the early mornings not paying attention to where they are going. Or the occassional morning driver still drunk from the late night.

    After having several incidents of stupidity, mostly in my own neighborhood, I developed my own rule / guideline to avoid riding on Friday and Saturday evenings. Those by far seem to be the worse times. Specifically the 10pm and later time when people are going back out with friends seems to be the worse time. Admittedly, I break my own rule often enough, but I'm a little bit more guarded if I ride at those times.

    We walk our dogs by bike and it feels like if I am with my wife it seems like I've had less issues at those times. I don't know if its because I'm with another rider or with a girl.

    Another incident that I was told about by my father was his friend who woke up in a hospital with no recollection of what had happened beyond remembering that there was a truck involved. He got hit in the back of the head while road cycling in Italy with the mirror of a truck. The driver just kept on going.

    When I was a teenager, a friend and I were skateboarding back from someplace, and an SUV full of older teens tried running us off the road, and getting in front of us and hitting their brakes.
    The two of us had plenty of time to memorize their license plate on the 3 mile trek back home, we called the cops, gave our report and that chump lost his license and had to deal with his pissed off mom! It was awesome! and somewhat sobering!

    Now a days when I ride my bike on road, Im always on lookout for idiots behind the wheel, and I always think back on my sweet revenge!

    I had a guy in Seattle intentionally run me into a jersey barrier. I got his mirror, and 4 rounds of 10mm into his tailgate.

    I also got his plate number. Cops found him and his brother in law trying to fix the bullet holes at his BIL's body shop. He got 4 years, his brother in law got 8 months for aiding and abetting.

    0. Attempted manslaughter, plus the 4 witnesses that saw him swerve at me, got me off.

    did you have it strapped to your hip, or did the guy stop and eat a sandwhich so you had all that time ? Sometimes I carry a cell phone in a hip pocket and could have maybe sprinted enough to get a plate and make a call...but even that would have been a longshot. It would have been righteous and all, but i never even bothered to try.

    With all the video cameras on the market these days it seems a good idea to strap one on and keep it on all your rides,then when it happens you will hopefully have something to help identify the assaulter

    Maybe I am over thinking this but how were you able to get away with firing at a truck driving away from you? Wouldn't this be like shooting a burgalar as he ran away from your house? I'd be inclined to do the same if I were in your shoes but am curious about the legality.

    I always call the police. I had one guy arrested in Chandler because he had been reported once before for throwing things at cyclists. It always pays to call the popo on ******bags.

    I didn't even know Washington was a carry state...

    I don't see how shooting at them was legal... but I would be inclined to do so as well so I am not judging.

    My aunt's boyfriend was riding down hayden around mountain view and some kids threw a whole submarine sandwich at him. He's kinda lame and that story always cracks me up.

    we had some kids throw eggs at us riding south down college a few weeks ago on our thursday night group ride. they missed us and ducked into a neighborhood which was a good thing. the last time our group got harassed by a motorist we caught them at the light and surrounded their vehicle. No laws were broken (by us) but that guy will never mess with a cyclist again.

    In High School I got tagged by a grapefruit hard enough to knock me down.... I happened to recognize the car and waited until real late that night and took a pair of pliers over to the dude house and pulled all his valve stems.

    I was bad.

    About three years ago I was biking through my neighborhood. I was riding when I got tagged with a beer bottle by some punks in a truck. It hurt like hell because it hit my foot and I was wearing crappy tennis shoes. Never found the jerks either...

    Firing your 10mm at someone who is no longer a threat to you (driving away...even if leaving a crime scene) is not defensible under the law. If this actually happened, you would most certainly have been charged with a crime.

    Posting some crap on here to look like a tough guy is not cool, especially as it may give someone the idea that similar behavior on their part may be legal.

    It isn't

    Next...

    I often ride up a local hill which happens to be the downhill section for the local Marathon. The entitled marathon trainees are total *****es and have several verbal run ins, and one guy trying to knock me off the bike.
    178lbs going 13mph vs. 165lbs going 5mph. I was the hammer in that situation.

    BITD I recall a car full of drink teenagers throwing empty beer bottles at a group of us riding home from the BMX track. One bottle smashed on the top tube of my 8 year old bothers bike. My brother was not injured but the mini GT frame had a nice dent on the top tube.

    I always laugh when road bikers ask me how I can participate in such a dangerous sport as mountain biking. I reply that I have never had anything thrown at me on a mountain bike trail and moving things never crash into me, I crash into things that are not moving.

    mcdowell/mckellips/power road has always given me trouble with the east mesa hillbilly types.

    One full sized water balloon knocked me clean off the bike and gave me a giant bruise.
    I've had sodas, hamburgers and bottles all miss.
    My personal favorite was the jelly donut, it was creative.
    It's a rough world out there on a road bike.. a lot of thoughtless people. It's a bit depressing.
    Today at the little league field, there was 3 dog turds on the infield. How does this happen?

    Bondo and I got buzzed today on 7th St. north of Carefree Hwy. Guy actually went through the bike lane, off into the dirt and proceeded to spin his tires to spit rocks and dirt at us. Another motorist saw the incident and took off after them to get the plate, but couldn't catch them. I may start wearing my helmet cam....

    Just had to post so not everything was negative...

    Just got back from a road ride and almost every single vehicle I saw moved over into the other lane, with only one exception! It was almost twilight zone freaky.

    that is the vast majority of my experiences. This was the 1 bad one (or, at least one willfully dbag move). However, when I ride I stay in the bike lane and i go single file or move over when a car is up. I hate seeing roadies in packs clogging whole lanes with no regard for traffic, and think that shenanigans does not help the rest of us.

    making up a story about how the guy was 'coming at you' will only tack on a lying-to-police charge once the ballistics and forensics reports come in

    Agreed. I always ride in the lane when there is one. And I always ride alone on the road, so single file it is.
