Some Idiots?

Postby mercalia » 18 Sep 2019, 11:07am

I was up at Crystal Palace yesterday and was astonished at the bravado/stupidity of this young guy, in his 20's scootering down Anerly Hill there. Not on an escooter or with disc brakes but one with just that foot on the rear wheel type. Any one who know the area it is really steep.

Don't know that hill myself but the loonies are definitely out there. I had to dodge a couple of kids on BMX's riding the wrong way down a bike lane that was part of the busy carriageway on a 10% gradient.
What rankled me was they gave me that look as if to say "Go on grandad, have a go if you dare".
Current status report:
Latter side of fifty and feeling less than nifty.
Too many bikes on pegs and too few miles in the legs.
