Cycling through the park behind South Gyle station last night, which is fairly close to the beginning of my home leg. A bunch of kids who I'd guess were average age about 11, picked up loads of leaves as they saw me approaching. As I passed them they threw them at me. Even though I knew they were going to do it I still somehow nearly fell off! I hadn't slowed down or anything because some silly part of me kept saying "nah, they wont, they wont". After the event, I just kept going as: a) I wanted to get home as quick as possible (as usual) I was cleated in, and c) I have my doubts about whether you can lawfully hit an 11 yr old It sounds pretty comical now but I was pretty pissed off at the time. As I picked the leaves off my velcro etc I wondered what the best course of action would be. Am still wondering if I should do anything about it NOW?
