A stranger kicked my bike because it was on a train
A lack of support from fellow passengers after a man attacked my bike for being on a train left me wondering whether cyclists are approaching pariah status
I didn’t notice the man kicking my bike at first. I was extremely tired, heading home from work at 10pm and texting a friend whose party I was in the process of missing. But the second assault was much more violent and concerted, and the bike fell to the floor of the carriage.
I looked up. My bike’s assailant was in his twenties, dressed casually but smartly. He smiled.
