This afternoon, whilst riding my bike, just before 3pm at the junction of Lordship Lane and Crystal Palace road, I was the victim of an attempted mugging by two boys on bikes. After shouting at me to get off my bike, one of them came up beside me and attempted to steer me off the road. Thankfully the one shouting came off his bike and I managed to mount the kerb and get away. Not sure what would have happened if he’d managed to stay on his bike. Please everyone be aware of your surroundings. Unsure as to why I was set on, maybe just opportunists.
Big thank you to the kind man at the bus stop who stayed with me whilst I called the police.
