Interesting, nothing similar ever happened to me and I cycle thousands of miles each year. So I guess it must have something to do with the way you behave on the road.
As every time was on quiet roads around midnight at a weekend I'd suggest the common factor was alcohol but I wasn't stopping to breathalyse them. And every case was on the same stretch of road through one part of the city, maybe 10% of my commute. The same area where a district nurse riding to work got a broken arm when she was shoved to the ground in a random attack. Also late at night.
