Why is this "Mugger" described as a "Cyclist"? If someone mugged someone & then jumped in a car to get away you wouldn't describe them as a "Motorist".

Yet another example of the OM's anti-cyclist attitude.

In fact, there are 2 stories below this one, a "man" attempted to run over a policeman with a "car" and another "man" caught having sex in a "car". Neither of them are called "Motorist". Come on OM, You could be a little less obvious.

Paranoid comments. The headline made me think that the cyclist must be the victim, but the report makes it clear that the dog walker was the target. Are bicycles only ridden by virtuous beardy types? No, some are used by robbers intent on a quick grab-and-get-away attack. Get over it!
