Bike jacking experiences?
Posted 30 June 2012 - 03:54
When riding alone (MTB) I tend to stay towards the middle of any jeeptrack so that anybody coming out the bushes would have to travel further and give me time to react. It was while doing this that I wondered whether they do hop out the bush or whether they approach strolling towards you before attacking. I presumed the latter but would like those who have experienced it to share their experiences.
I do know that uphills are meant to be more of a risk due to the slower speeds being travelled at. They apparently grab the back wheel resulting in your tumbling.
Please share and maybe it can help the rest of us. Thanks.

I stared a facebook group "Krugersdorp MTB" You post your training ride and MTB'ers in the same area can join in. We stared of with a hand full of people and now we are a 150 + MTB'ers .... Make a plan and start training in groups.
BTW, the demon that jacked me was just walking minding his own thing.... then.... all hell broke loose.
Long storie short.... I'm lucky to be alive today. All the GRORY to the KING !!!

In the perfect world this might work, but in the real world they ambush you.
You know exactly what he meant.
Also no need to diss what was said and insult his beliefs.
