Angry Incident in The Woodlands (punks)

After visiting a customer in Magnolia I headed to The Woodlands to pick up little man from daycare. While on Woodlands Parkway, I noticed that I was coming up on some cyclists on the shoulder and didn't think much of it as it's pretty typical.

What really caught my attention though was that the vehicle in front of me chunked a water bottle at these two guys riding and minding their own business. I instantly jotted down their plate and car description and got pretty ******.

We ended up at a stop light and the cyclists caught up and got up on the window of the SUV. I think it was two young HS age kids driving and they wouldn't roll down the windows but the cyclists were pretty ******.

They kept riding while we were stopped and then when we got a green light, the kids in the SUV threw more **** out of the windows at them. At that point, I decided to call the cops.

I followed them for a few miles and they knew I was following them as they went in and out of parking lots tying to lose me while I was giving the cops updates. They drove like crazy and almost caused a few accidents.

Anyway, I stopped following them and keep hoping the cops show up on their front porch but I'm half inclined to find out where they live and ask to talk to the parents.

What say you? Would you let it go or track them down and talk to mom and pop? Again, this was The Woodlands so I've gotta think his parents don't know he is using his nice SUV to harass bikers.

Many cyclists wear go pro type cameras to get footage of bad driver behavior these days.

I've tracked down kids by their plate number before when they did stupid stuff like that. Showed up at their house and showed their dad video of them acting dumb as ****. Also let them know it's not hard to find them. I would go talk to the parents if I were you.

I don't have a video of it but I have no problem giving a play by play to a parent. I think they'll believe a stranger showing up on their front porch telling a story like mine.

Houstonhunter, I think you got the right idea. Go have a talk with their parents. And post your story on as much social media as possible. I've been in the cyclist position. Had a beer bottle thrown at me one time. Landed in my rear wheel. My heart rate was already in the 150s. Wouldn't have taken much to be all over that car load of kids if I had caught up to them. I've caught others at stop lights that were afraid to roll down their windows. It was "just leave me alone" response. Well if they would of left me alone, I wouldn't be ready to smash their window out and drag them out of the car. Dang bunch of cowards! I was pretty fit back then riding, running, and swimming all the time, when I wasn't doing resistance training.

I HATE the people that ride their bikes on the road causing traffic jambs, not worried about anyone but their selves thinking they own the road and shouldn't have to follow any of the laws including speed limit.. on the other hand hate young punks that think they can drive around throwing stuff out the window at people and honking..

I agree Randal. I for one am not one of the thoughtless riders of that kind. And have always tried to promote rider/driver friendliness/thogtfullness. Some riders get to caught up in self, just like any other person, including drivers, hunters, fisher people, coworkers, ect, ect.

When it comes down to it, it's about being thoughtful of your fellow human being.

These cyclists weren't the ones you are describing. The were on the far side of the shoulder at least a yard from all of the vehicles minding their own business.

If they were driving through my neighborhood I would give the kids something to throw at the cyclist. The ones around us run lights & act like the traffic laws don't pertain to them. Wish I could imprint a few of them on my bumper. In all honesty, if the cyclist were obeying the traffic laws I would do what you are doing. I ride my bike on the trails around here & would hate to see someone being harassed for just riding.

I agree with you in most cases but not this one, The Woodlands is designed for bikers & runners with either very large shoulders or bike paths so that the runners / bikers don't impede traffic.

Punks need to be dealt with

Sounds like the punks need a good whooping but I can't stand cyclist for the most part. They seem to think laws don't apply to them and they can hold up traffic for their convenience and act like pricks.

Good gesture on your part to get involved and report it. Further involvement could go either way depending on the parents. They could be the type that "my kids do no wrong" and if this is the case who knows what will happen. Also if you can find them easily that goes two ways. Personally I would leave it be you went above and beyond helping already. More than 99% of other people in most cases. You never know what type of people you may be dealing with for retribution possibly. Yes I have been there done that with punks like this and what it took to get them off our case I was fortunate (lucky) to get by with it. Things can go south very quickly. Thanks are in line for your efforts!! Let the police handle it.

doesn't surprise me to see nothing has changed with the entitled youth of the woodlands. been gone for 20 years and i couldn't get out fast enough.

there is a good chance the "parents" are either too busy to raise their kids right or they are just as big of a ***** as the kids are. either way a site visit probably won't go well.


to the guys complaining about bikers. you think this is bad you should try living in colorado. they would shut down roads with so many of them and in the foothills they don't have shoulders to move into. got very dangerous

what's the harm with letting them ride on the shoulder. it takes 2 seconds to get around them. i drive a lot, like average 40k a year a lot, and encounter them frequently on several of the backroads. probably see a few on my way home in a couple hours. it's a 2 second inconvenience to wait to properly pass them. i have more problems passing the slow drivers (rant for another day) i run into an asshat every once in awhile but not the majority. i think sometimes we get in such a rush that we forget how trivial some of these problems are. grab a beer, cigar and a go chill by the lake.

as a disclaimer, i'm not a rider. i'm too fat, don't look good in spandex and they don't make a seat with enough cushion.

I with a passion hate cyclists. I personally think they make the road less safe, and they should not be allowed on any city street at any time, especially doing busy periods, in highly urban areas where they have no buffer to the traffic around them.

That being said, throwing stuff at a cyclist does nothing but make it WAY less safe then having the cyclists on the road in the first place. Hope the kids get whooped by their parents.

Trust me, being skinny is not a requirement for wearing spandex. And the cyclists here in Katy make it abundantly clear.

The only thing I hate more than cyclists are Amish people. It's like no one told them I own this road, and I wanna go fast. Screw sharing the road. If you wanna have rights buy an F-250.

I knew that response would make it.

If the little **** biscuits were bad enough to throw stuff they should have stopped.

I don't like bikes in the road anymore than the next guy but throwing stuff at some off the roadway or on the shoulder is wrong. Scott Engle that runs MOCO police reporter is a good dude. Post them or email him

I'm going to tone this down as much as I can. First off Houstonhunter clearly stated that the cyclists were minding their own business, on the shoulder, out of traffic, and that it was the punks that were the problem. Yet several of you jump on and instantly condemn the cyclists, REALLY???, that's like saying all bow hunters just wound animals and don't find them.....and I know we've all heard that.
Not all cyclist, at a max of 275lbs, want and look to pick a fight with a bumper attached to a 7500+ lbs vehicle. Some of us have turned to cycling as a means to deal with something, an outlet if you will, instead of sitting in a bar drinking ourselves to a drunken stuper and driving home. So get off your high horse and see the situation for what it was, PUNKS BEING PUNKS!!!!!!
I cycle, and drive the same roads, I see both sides and have seen the bad on both sides, but to say you want to put a cyclist on your bumper....all I have to say is bring it on, don't hide behind that computer screen, man up, let's see how big a man you are standing outside that truck, and I'll show you why I took to cycling...not the first time I've punched a window out and jerked a jackwagon outta a vehicle.

Not all cyclist, at a max of 275lbs, want and look to pick a fight with a bumper attached to a 7500+ lbs vehicle. Some of us have turned to cycling as a means to deal with something, an outlet if you will, instead of sitting in a bar drinking ourselves to a drunken stuper and driving home. So get off your high horse and see the situation for what it was, PUNKS BEING PUNKS!!!!!!
I cycle, and drive the same roads, I see both sides and have seen the bad on both sides, but to say you want to put a cyclist on your bumper....all I have to say is bring it on, don't hide behind that computer screen, man up, let's see how big a man you are standing outside that truck, and I'll show you why I took to cycling...not the first time I've punched a window out and jerked a jackwagon outta a vehicle.

Yep I sure would like to imprint some or all of the inconsiderate cyclist on my bumper. Get tired of dodging them running lights , stop signs etc. I have NO problem with cyclist who obey the laws. Like I said I ride too, but either on the bike trails or neighborhood. I obey the law so hopefully someone doesn't imprint me on their bumper. If you are riding a bike and not obeying traffic laws you deserve what you get. I agree 100% cyclist should be able to ride unbothered or threathend if you are obeying the law. Even agreed the punks needed an axz whoopin for what they did. Sad part is bad comes from automobile drivers and cyclist. Unfortunately the cyclist will lose that battle. If you are riding within the law you should be treated with the respect same as a car driver, if not it won't bother me one bit if you become a hood ornament.

Be careful approaching the parents. I caught a kid ringing my door bell after midnight. I actually caught the kid after the fourth ringing of my door bell. I explained to him what would happen if my door bell rang again. Go to the next evening the kids father rings my door bell and wanting to know why i caught his son by his tee shirt the night before. He was actually mad at me. I simply told him next time he could identify the body.

I haven't quite figured out why the cyclists can't use the streets with the marked bike route that the city made for them? I watched about 15 of them get ticketed for running a red light. LEO pulled the whole lot of them over. I clapped as I drove by.

You chased this punks down with your kid in the car?

Better hope they dont call CPS on you JK

If the bikers were on the road between 4-6pm, its their fault.
