I honestly dont know what to expect. Have a lot going on. Anxious.

Ja, its not like the movies. It will be a long and drawn out day that chews at the threads of your emotion as you try to maintain yourself. You will be witness to the dregs of society that day and what impact they have on the rest of us. I don't want to paint a bleak picture, but steel yourself over the weekend and focus on the good things. Appreciate the fact that you can love on your wife and kid(s) and that you have an entire community here on the hub supporting you in absentia on Monday. We will all be carrying you in our thoughts and prayers until this thing is behind you.

Some good advice and suggestions on the site, but it seems like everyone and everywhere is increasingly a risk. 2 weeks ago I had 2 guys come down the side of the mountain/slope near the Kramat around Lions heads. Fortunately I had seen them stand up from behind some bushes when I was still 30-40M away, and as soon as they realised they had been seen, started running towards me. I was able to turn my bike around and speed off downhill. Needless to say, haven't been back there since.... 

Glad these guys are both ok after the incident 

Just out of interest, what day of the week and time of day was this?

I ride alone around there all the time too🙁

So, I have my court date, Monday.

Robbery and attempter murder for running me over with a polo and then stealing the remains of my supersix. 

Flip, I hope they dont want me to identify this dudes wrist tattoo or freckles as I was not really paying that much attention while he rode me over then turned around and tried to run me over again.

All the best champ, If there can be a "positive" to look forward to, Just remember this dude probably has no idea what you even look like, it wasn't a personal attack, You unfortunately were just in the wrong place at the wrong time so the oke probably doesn't have anything against you personally.

 

In saying that, I hope he ends up behind bars for our sake and for the sake of many others out there. God Bless and be strong bro.

 

And oh yes last thing, I hope the oke actually pitches up to court.

I'm sure I would be too. Thanks for trying to do the right thing here, it will hopefully make other cyclists safer.

Hey Wolver

Not exactly sure of day, but think it was a Tuesday, and around 14h00 in the afternoon. I find that I now feel safer riding later in the afternoon/evening (around 16h00-18h00) as there are more people out and about, than during the middle of the day when the area is quieter. 

I have now changed my "old" route and avoid the areas around Lions Head, and now generally ride from Camps Bay up through the Glen, then Tafelberg Road (or above Deer Park / Disa Park) to the blockhouse and back.

I also ride alone, so happy to ride during the day together if you want. Drop me a PM

It went well. I did not have to meet him, due to COVID they are not transporting people. 

I am impressed with the prosecutor as he had a long chat with me and I think may be even reading the hub from what I can tell. 

Thanks for all the wishes, it really meant a lot. I did not sleep for 3 or 4 nights before. The whatsapp and emails really did help calm it all down.

COVID seems to really have hit the courts hard, all the other 8 cases with me were all postponed till Aug/Sept.

That's normally what happen, if the accused pleads "not guilty", case get postponed for them to prepare the defense.  Hang in there ...
