    So, I was walking alongside a main road by Sainsbury's last month when a guy suddenly dashed out in front of traffic on his bicycle, turned and shouted "F*** offffff! F*** OFFFFFFF!" at the rightly-annoyed driver behind him. Cut to a week later and I've just crossed the entrance to a car park with several vehicles waiting for the chance to exit when I see a cyclist rocketing down the path towards me. I stand to one side to see it's the same guy... he rides out in front of those waiting cars and shouts the same "F*** offffff! F*** OFFFFFFF!" at them.

    I was telling my parents about him in the week and apparently he's a known element.... this is his thing that he does: drives out in front of traffic and then swears at them. He's always decked out in full cycling gear. Sounds like he might be a bit mental. Have any of you guys seen him or know who he is?

    I think he is frightening but this is what "care in the community" gets you.

    I think a fair number of us have had a run in with him - haven't seen him myself for a while though, I was starting to wonder if he'd perhaps hung up his cycle helmet

    He mostly is, but a couple of times he's he's been 'nice, smiley & a gentleman' when I've been driving. (I was coming out of mini Tesco on stone rd, he was on his bike on the pavement, he gesturesd for me to pull out first, but we ended up in a bit of a 3 way stand off as I didn't trust him not to cycle in front of me the minute I pulled out.... I gave in & went first in the end (plenty of witnesses about) & he just smiled & waved at me!!!)...this however does not really make up for the times he's banged on my passenger window & shouted obscenaties as I'm driving !

    ALWAYS ALWAYS give him a wide berth, he will serve infront of you on purpose, & they giving him a smile. :)

    I've seen him for 3 days running now, Stone Rd x 2 & 1 x on that grassy bit of land off the Stone Rd behind the railings that must be Parkside - I often see him walking up & down there on his phone...

    He has a few problems, doesn't excuse the way he is tho. But he is known to services.

    This arsehole was just causing serious problems on Wolverhampton road, swerving into the traffic to swear at trees. He seems to be an Asian bloke, completely loved in the head! Dangerous. I've seen him swearing and screaming cycling through the centre of town too. Police to nothing about him though.

    Apart from taking his bike away from him (which would be a good idea but probably not legal) what exactly could the police do?

    He only passed me at about 5.15pm on the Stone Rd. He didn't shout at me for once, he was to busy picking his nose!

    It's a criminal offence, he is causing danger to life by attempting to cause accidents.

    Fair point but he's also a sad case who clearly isn't getting/taking medication.
