There is something seriously wrong with our society when someone who is out on a leisurely bicycle ride can be ambushed and robbed of their belongings.
Even worse, when that person is elderly. Are we not supposed to be looking out and serve the best interests of these very people?
And, even worse, that these thugs don’t even bother to disappear at the speed of light after an attack. There is almost a taunting and arrogant feeling about it and one that sends the message that they are untouchable and that it is a free for all out there.
Worse even is the fact that I have cycled that same stretch of road hundreds of times and that I hence forward will have to approach it with fear in my heart – for myself and my better half on my wheel.
