Two cyclists just couldn't let it go, went back for a fight with
youngsters and lost.

Correction... "two people just couldn't let it go"... Off topic for a
cycling newsgroup. Try a Birmingham newsgroup.

Please enlighten us as to why people riding bicycles are not to be
called cyclists?

It really doesn't look as though it had all that much to do with cycling.

Just one group of chavs scrapping with another.

Timothy Cray, prosecuting at Birmingham Crown Court, said in the course

The defendant responded by biting the victim’s ring finger on her left
hand with “very great force”.

Fancy retaliating for something as trivial as having your hair grabbed
hold of and a mere blow to the face, eh?

They sound well-matched.

The main participant seems to have been one Tiffany Crockett.

Is Shard End a bit of a wild frontier?

I agree. The subject of the story was an assault. Without more details, I
can only assume that the fact that the victim was a cyclist is irrelevant.

You really should try cycling for a while and see the abuse that we
endure just for being where we are on a bike and then see if you want to
go back.

Oh, sorry, you would prefer to be the one dishing out the abuse.

According to the criteria laid down by your predecessors, you spend the
majority of your travelling time in a motorised vehicle, therefore you are a
motorist. You're not part of the "we cyclists" minority, especially since
you admit that you hardly cycle any more.

There is nothing in that report which suggests to me that Mr and Mrs
Brady were louts (my interpretation of your racist term "chavs").

As they cycled by, they may well have felt it their civic duty to
challenge the offensive behaviour apparently displayed by the three
young women.

The pulling of the girl's hair and punching her face by Mrs Brady does
not appear, from the news report, to have been a criminal act, and
therefore self defence.

But I assume much, and cannot know for sure, but I certainly would not
want to label Mr and Mrs Brady as "chavs" (or even louts) on the
evidence from that report.
