Why do some people think cyclists are easy targets for verbal and physical abuse? We’ve heard horrifying stories from female bike couriers who suffer street harassment on a daily basis, and sometimes it goes further than a wolf-whistle or cat call. Have you ever wanted to get your own back? Well this woman does…
A guy on a motorbike filmed an altercation between a female cyclist and a van full of lads, stopped at some traffic lights. Calling out of their window to her, she pushes them back, folding their wing mirror in an attempt to have them leave her alone.
Not falling for their charms, the men in the van turn nasty asking her “you on your period?” – and if that isn’t enough to instantly have you white with rage, they proceed to ask for her number.
As the lights turn green, the van pulled off… with the female cyclist chasing them down, and the filming motorbiker in tow. As the van pulls in to park, the female cyclist takes her revenge out on the van by ripping off their wing mirror. You go girl!
