Cycling along this morning - I had to change my route yet again as I now try to avoid the Hagley Road in Birmingham after getting knocked off so now I got under the underpass at the crossroads and up Lordswood Road. I have to go past the entrance to Lordswood Boys School and as I went past this morning I was shouted at "you're going to get it" and then (I kid you not) about 20/25 snowballs were pelted at me at once. (Stop laughing!) I had a bus overtaking me and a lorry behind me at the time but managed to stay on (luckily they were all really crap aims - all those truanting from PE lessons) but it was actually really frightening! I phoned the school who said all they can do is apologise - I don't think that's good enough - they need to be told how dangerous it is! God knows how I stayed on and if I hadn't I would have been under the bus - at the very least coming off flipping hurts!!! I think that as this has become massively popular they should have a member of staff outside the schools when it snows which is only about 3 flipping times a year! Has anyone else been a victim of "Pelt the Cyclist?!" By the way I am laughing myself now but at the time it was scarey!!!
