Properly lost my shit today. Coming back from the park with my three year old on a seat behind me on a 20mph residential street, almost right outside my house, car drives straight at me head on, at speed, just missed. I offload some strong abuse in their direction. Two youths get out 19/20 year olds and start threatening (to fire bomb my house) and trying to fight me. They've then ridden round the block a few times to try and see where I live, we get into it again round the corner.
I'm not proud of my reaction at all. Definitely escalated it and put me and son in a dangerous situation. Stupid thing is, if I was on my own I might've let it go, zen cyclist and all that. 40 years old, two kids, still learning
Hope you've told the police mate.
