    He was riding his bike last week.

    I can't confirm anything about his leg but he looked fit enough to ride his bike.

    Just a shame his face is jammed in a Ford Focus radiator grille.

    Saw him last night. Appeared in good spirits and in rude health. For the sake of anonymity him isn't described and location of the seeing is not disclosed.

    Here's a video of my encounter a month ago, before I knew who he was: <REDACTED>

    Had another encounter as i was finishing my ride today - Just as i was coming up to the lights on the Stone Rd to turn into the Graham Belfour estate from town, I clocked him before he clocked me. So when he started turning to come across I shouted "Alright Steve, are we doing this again? Are you gonna have another go at chasing me? I know who you are Steve".

    After I'd logged my Strava a random lady sent me a follow request. Turns out I'd just overtaken her before encountering Steve and she'd seen him veer across the road in front of traffic to try and follow me, and was concerned.

    It's a good job I'm a keen cyclist and he's got no chance of catching me, cause I'm rubbish at fighting!

    Strange, I've had a lot of contact with him over the last 2 weeks, he's been very polite, calm & well mannered...

    @Admin I'm not sure posting a video about someone, who has a recognised illness is right. There for the grace of God and all that. And there's no need for the name 'Town Nutter'.

    As I already mentioned (if you'd read it properly) this happened before I knew who he was. I posted this a month ago on Youtube and only found out about this thread today!

    I read it, and i've also reported this to admin.
    IF you had read through the whole 14 pages of chat, you will have seen that the gentleman in question has a recognised mental illness.
    In that video you goad him, Gold Star to you.

    The video was posted a month ago as already mentioned. Would be interested to hear how you'd react to a person you'd never met before making aggressive, intimidating actions towards you, and then actively trying to pursue you all-the-while shouting abuse? Perhaps you'd be a little less sanctimonious!

    You were goading him in that video.
    It's quite easily found on youtube. I've reported it on there too.

    So if someone stops at a roundabout and then makes a b-line towards you shouting "You got a problem" repeatedly, again, and I cannot stress this enough, without you knowing who they were, how would you react?

    You seem to be judging me on 14 pages of forum that I had no knowledge about, which is extremely unfair!

    So why make your first post about him? You must have searched for him online to post it.
    I work with people suffering with their mental health. It boils my pee when something like this video is posted just to take the mickey

    I live round the corner from where he lives, which means the chances of meeting him again are extremely high. I felt extremely intimidated by him on both occasions we've met. It may not come across on the video (mainly bravado) but my heart rate was 176bpm, and i was doing my best to get away from the situation as quickly as possible.

    Knowing he has a mental illness doesn't diminish from the fact that i'm now anxious everytime i go out for a bike ride... a) Because he may find out where i live and b) he may do something serious if he catches up with me.

    Sorry if that's offends you!

    Happy to take it down from here, but i won't take it down from Youtube, as I'll use it as evidence if anything more serious happens.

    I'd already posted it to Staffs police, but got no response.

    @Glam It's also interesting that given your strident nature towards mental illness that you define yourself as "Mad cat woman", which is a pejorative term with mental health connotations!
