Blackburn man pulled from bike

A BLACKBURN man was left with a nasty cut to the back of his head after a being pulled from his bicycle.

Police said the 32-year-old was riding his black mountain bike along Byron Street when he was pulled of his bike by a gang of men, before hitting his head on the pavement.

The gang, including two white men and an asian man all wearing dark tracksuit type clothing, then ran off empty handed.

The cyclist managed to call an ambulance and was taken to the Royal Blackburn Hospital where his head wound was later glued.

The incident took place on Friday shortly after 10.30pm.

Detectives are now appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

DS Adrian McHugh said: “I urge anyone who witnessed the information to contact police on 101.”

It doesn't excuse what happened, but it does happen to be illegal.

It doesn't matter whether he was on the pavement, whether he had lights or whether his bell worked. He was assaulted by a bunch of cowardy thugs who need to be punished.

It sounds like if he got a cut on the head he probably wasn't wearing a safety helmet , that's what they were designed for you know.
If he is looking for criminal comp that will be taken into consideration.

Call me suspicious but I think he fell off his bike made up the story just to get a bit of time off work (if he works), and a bit of good old comp.

bike helmets are a matter of choice , not law.
i know many who ride 10,000+ miles a year without one and without incident.

in most cases helmets are only necessary because so many motorists are aware of what thye're doing.

A good point. There are some really selfish cyclists out there that don't care less and deserve a good beating. Whether this is the case, who knows....
But even though you don't know, you can't resist having a go at a cyclist? That's because you are overweight, unfit, lazy and suffer HDL and high blood pressure that will see you inside a coffin many years earlier than the average. Whether this is the case, who knows?

Actually they do.

People who ride on the pavement are dog dirt and cause numerous minor accidents. I was just making a supportive comment and it's not my fault you've got yourself upset

What story have I made up? Are you saying that people don't cycle on the pavement? I hope you do because it would confirm how stupid you are.

You're too stupid to be embarrassed at how stupid you're continuing to make yourself look.

Cyclists do not cycle on the pavement. You might get some kid on a BSO who rides on a pavement but that kid isn't a cyclist and doesn't yet know the agenda.

To claim that knob-heads who potter around pavements on BSOs cause a risk to ANYone is taking a hatred of cyclists to mentally-ill proportions. You think you've got an argument but you are making yourself look ludicrous and worse than pathetic.

There has to be some underlying mental health problem with you if you are getting yourself this worked up. Somebody who uses a cycle is a cyclists, regardless of wherever or whatever they are cycling. People of an adult age but with a retards brain will cycle at silly speeds at silly places thus supporting my comments about being a danger and deserving a slap. Your denial of this fact is proof ( if ever needed ) that you are a liar and an fool.

At no point did I claim this person cycled on the pavement or that I hate cyclists. You can keep arguing if you wish but you will simply continue to make yourself look stupid and who am I to stop you from doing that after all these years.

Actually, they never claimed the victim was on the pavement, they simply asked a question - hence the ? at the end of the sentence.

I also said 'some cyclists' deserve a beating.

Not only have we made you look like a paranoid idiot but I've even given you a lesson is English literature. I can see why you like making things up as you are unable to extrapolate facts from a given comment.

Still, my helping of the feeble minded has given me a little bit of karma
