Hi there, Jordan and Ethiopia seem to be two countries, where kids have fun to throw stones at cyclists.

What is the best reaction to this? How do you make them stop?

Thanks for your suggestions,
Pascal

When I was in Tibet on the Friendship Hwy, I didn't have trouble with stonethrowing kids, but youngsters along the road could get seriously annoying - from begging to trying to steal stuff from my backrack to slowing me down by holding on the panniers! After 2,3 incidents I just gragged my "dogstick", holding it so that everybody ahead could see it. Suddenly everybody behaved very nicely...

I would advise to pick up some stones yourself and make sure they see them. Otherwise you could stop and try to interact. Not a good idea would be giving handouts like stickers, pens, sweets, or even money. It would even more encourage them to keep this behavior.

Hi Pascal :-)

I cycled in Jordania and Tibet but in Tibet I did not have problems. In Jordania children threw stones at me between Amman and Petra. Don't worry to much as they can not aim that well smile
First of all you should behave and look confident.In Jordania I always greeted the children with Salam Aleikhum and they stopped throwing or collecting stones. They always turned out to be very curious. Another way is to pretend to throw back and make it like a game, that also works or you can make a joke about it and pretent to catch the stones. And if nothing else woks look at them with a cold killer look but I only had to do that once. Most of the time a Salam Aleikhum was enough smile

Cycle the world,
Marc

its just a way of kids to get your attention... they are sometime got fascinated by biker passers... But they should also be stop... why not try take time to stop and talk to them on not throwing stone.. hmmm.. i think thats suggestion because some kids dont understand any other language.. but if you do know whats there local language you may talk to them... those kids throw stones because maybe no one have ever tried to stop them... maybe they think its alright... smile

Also means no Jordan and Ethiopia for me lol.

I'll go straight to them and if their parents are around I might talk to them.
That is if they understand English or maybe I'll wear a shirt with a
"no throwing of stones to cyclist" and a "peace" sign.

laugh
