Um, OP here. Scared to reply because of the abuse I've been getting but obviously I deserved it, I know that. 1. I guess I posted it as an FML because I realised how much of a dick/arsehole/cunt/wanker I'd been... 2. The guy wasn't cycling to the side like he should have been, he was more out to the middle. I just lost my cool to be honest, if he doesn't care about his safety by doing that, why should I bother about not making him jump? (unpopular opinion obviously...) 3. I should probably point out that this was a quiet road, I was the only car, otherwise I wouldn't have done it, which may be surprising to some of you... 4. He caught up to me because I slowed back down to normal speed after about 30 seconds. Guess he was stronger than I thought. 5. I KNOW I'm a colossal twat. But I still hate cyclists. Some of them are SO up their own arses. Having said that, I WILL NEVER EVER DO ANYTHING LIKE THIS AGAIN.

You completely deserved it. I absolutely HATE when drivers taunt cyclist. I was almost hit by another car because someone was taunting me.
This reminds me of a news article I read today about a lady in England who hit a cyclist, drove off, and bragged about it on Twitter until people brought it to the attention of the cops. Some people are just rude, and I don't understand why someone would want to intentionally hit a cyclist. They're on the roads all the time here, and it's not like they're causing any trouble.
There was a case similar to that where I live. Some horrible woman in a van deliberately rammed this cyclist from behind and because they were on a windy road he ended up first smashing into the embankment and then skidding across the road and over the side. Broke his back and spent ages in hospital. Good news is that he was wearing one of those GoPro cameras on his helmet and caught her picture, van and registration on film. Fucker got sent to jail and justice prevailed.
I get why drivers hate cyclists - being one myself, it is true that crashes often tend to be our fault: I was nearly hit the other week, partly due to a misunderstanding and the car going faster than I thought it was, but mostly my own fault for not paying attention. But just because you have a shit ton of metal protecting you doesn't mean you're invulnerable to Karma. Remember when Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins got hit by a van? One of his coaches got hit the next week. Just after an Olympic bus driver hit and killed yet another cyclist. That was the best way cyclists will ever make their point, but they don't get given a chance.
Just be glad that's all he did. Last year I was on my motorbike, riding with a few mates, and some arsehole did this. Well long story short, one of my mates put the guy in hospital with a broken nose, broken jaw, and 3 fractured ribs. If the cyclist had gotten off his bike and beaten the crap out of you I'm sure we would all be saying that he did the right think you massive arsehole.
I cannot believe how many people liked this comment. It's a completely one-sided story, who knows what you and your mates may have been doing, and regardless a motorbike is completely different than a bicycle and some person deserved to be beaten like that and put in the hospital for honking? I hope your friend suffered the consequences of his actions as you seem to think the person who was beaten did
What the hell? That is an extreme case of battery, which could be a felony. Who would hospitalize someone just for that? The idiot must have some serious anger issues. Your friend was likely forced to pay for all his medical bills and jailed for a good amount of time. You and your friends are a waste of space and assholes through and through.
Seriously? He tried to pick a fight with a guy piloting a few thousand pounds of metal?
Sounds like you got off easy, if he fell and got hurt or worse got ran over and killed, you'd be facing more than a few disapproving FML comments
