Good on you for calling the cops HoustonHunter. I have done the same in the past when I have encountered jackwagon drivers.

x2. They could call 911 and report you are harassing them on their property to document you were there, and then file a civil lawsuit. Or the Dad could take the keys away and whoop the kid who deserves it. You don't know.

no joke! they complain about wanting to ride on the road, get their own lane made for them and dont use it..

This^^^^ That and the son of a guns always seem to ride on the roads with no shoulder where speed limit is 70. Unreal the ignorance. They almost never stop at stop signs or stop lights. Blows my mind.

Throwing stuff at cyclist is absolute bush league and should be dealt with accordingly. I have no problem the OP called the law on those kids. Someone could get seriously hurt. Bet it wouldn't be so funny if that water bottle knocked one of those people off their bike and they got hit by a car.

With that being said, I'm not a fan of cyclist especially around Houston and the surrounding area. They will ride in packs of 20 or more and impede traffic on heavily traveled urban roads that don't even have bike lanes. I've even been behind a few groups with well over 100 people. It's sucks there are too many cars on the road for people to not get fed up over cycling, but that's where we are at. The cycling population in general hasn't helped itself either. Many groups seem to take the a-hole, we have a right to do whatever we want, attitude which rubs a lot of people the wrong way. At the very least, I think the State should make these people pay an annual registration fee to use their cycles on the road.

Two wrongs don't make a right. Cyclists are wrong for riding on a street or highway intended for cars and higher speed vehicles. That's what bike paths are for. Punks are wrong for chunking anything at them out the window.

In the old days people just opened the car door as they drove by. Of course the door sheetmetal was much stronger back then and didn't dent as bad.

I think something in the neighborhood of $10,000 would be good.

Him following them resulted in the t u r d s driving reckless through parking lots. Driving reckless through parking lots does endanger others.

All that needed to happen in this situation was to report it and go on about your day.

That's where you are wrong. Parents won't believe anyone that little Johnny would do anything like that.

You might be surprised. They should be made aware anyway and given the opportunity.

Wow, just checked this for the first time today and it sure took some interesting turns.

No, my son wasn't in my truck when this happened, I was on the way to pick him up.

I wasn't on their tail like a high speed chase, I was casually staying close and they were going nuts without any help from me.

Again, the bikers were no where near the cars.

All parties were Caucasian for what it's worth

As a law enforcement officer AND a cyclist IN THE WOODLANDS they would regret the day they threw something at me.

You did a good thing, you got the LP and vehicle description. With that info the officers can follow up and contact the driver and or parents. I would not go knocking on someone's door over this if I was not the one directly involved.

You did good, Justus. I can't imagine what would have kept me from throwing my bike through their passenger window, so those guys showed restraint. Good for you for looking after them.


One of the best memories of my youth is watching two bikers ride down the middle of what was then a country road in Porter, TX. An older man in a pick up was behind them and my dad and I were behind the pick up. I was about 7.

Well the bikers thought the old man was following too close, so they shot him the bird. He didn't like someone shooting him the bird and used his pickup to ruin the rear tire of the biker.....all of this at a very slow speed. The biker gets up off the ground and goes and pulls the old man out of the truck....and proceeded to get the ***-whipping of a lifetime. That old man beat that 20something like it was his job.

My dad told me something sitting right there watching the fight: Don't mess with an old man because most aren't too busy to stop and whip your butt.
