See my link on Harrassment of cyclists. I have had this done to me a few months back in Kent (but nothing happened as I couldn’t get the reg number in the dark) and at around the same time by stupid drunk yoofs.
Thanks to crap waltham forest for posting the article.
“Cyclist struck by bottle
A male cyclist had a bottle thrown at him by a passing car, at around 11.30am.
The man had been cycling on racing-type pushbike at the Ballydonaghy Road when the incident occurred.”
