The 5 rider lunch crew was on our way to the trails today, and we were riding north on Ormsby Blvd at around 11:50 AM. A white Chevy/GMC full size pickup truck (it’s always a pickup truck!!) heading south at around 40mph sped towards us and the passenger threw a handful of rubber balls into our path. One ball struck Sandie in the chest, and one hit Scott C in the shin, leaving a pretty good sized knot. Other balls hit the bikes. Luckily nobody got hit in the face or crashed. As expected, we heard the pubescent laughter of teenage boys as they passed. By the time we had our wits and looked back, they were already way down the road at Washington Street. Too far away to get a plate, and going too fast to pursue…especially with Washington or Ormsby to continue the getaway on. Had it been downtown, we would have caught them.
I’m going to head down to the police station sometime today and file a report. Keep your eyes and ears open!
