The problem has got so bad in the area around Hockley Woods police are now threatening to take away, and crush, any bikes they get hold of.
It comes after several near-misses involving horses, dogs, and even walkers who want to use the woods in peace.'The Problem' being inconsiderate, dangerous, chavvy little shits on off-road bikes.
Well, I believe one couple has already come up with the perfect solution:
Chris Richmond was taken to hospital with burns and bruising on his neck after hitting the leash stretched across his path by a middle-aged man and a woman.
Police are treating the attack as grievous bodily harm and are hunting the couple who left the 23-year-old unable to breathe and in shock.And, presumably, left him less likely to ever do it again.
I'm calling that a win-win.
Mr Richmond and his mates asked for a go on the bike. He believes he was doing about 20mph when he hit the lead. He said: "I remember the woman giving me a dirty look beforehand, as if to say, 'You shouldn't be doing that'."
"Perhaps I shouldn't have been but that was no way to react. You don't expect that from middle-aged people."No, indeed you don't.
And that's precisely why inconsiderate scum like you have felt free to do as you please in the full knowledge that there will be no consequences.
Well, sometimes there are. But hey, maybe I'm a bit too harsh here? Maybe he's not a worthless example of the human ra...
