Above: Scene of the crime part two. My first collision with a cyclist outside Jempson’s, Hastings.
After being hit by the skateboarder in Priory Meadow and seeking help from Sussex Coast College, I found myself further developing my ‘close involvement’ with Hastings anti-social boarders and bikers, when a cyclist rode into me outside Jempson’s bakery and coffee shop.
He came ‘flying’ around the corner of Jempson’s, having cycled down past the toilets and heading into the town centre. This is an area that is unsigned, despite my already having called East Sussex County Council about the lack of signage. I’ll return to their hopeless signage in another post.
As I had already discovered, verbal abuse on the part of the person crashing into me would be an integral part of our close contact.
