Here’s a brave woman. Good for her.
Worth watching the video as there is further commentary from a cycling engagement officer:

Whilst I would love to challenge men who do this, the fact is women shouldn't be encountered to enter confrontation with these men. They're running the risk the aggression leads to violence.
What we actually need is to be able to report instances and number plates and for the police to follow up and fine if appropriate.
Pigs might fly.

I was sat outside a restaurant on Thursday night and a van drove past blaring music. As it disappeared, I had the usual 'what a prick' conversation with my partner, all of a sudden we could hear the music getting louder again. He had turned around and was coming back. As he went past, he slowed down to shout something out to a woman cyclist in the Cycle Lane. So he had seen her and deliberately turned around to harass her. What a prick indeed.

My dd just informed me today that yesterday she and 2 friends were harassed 3 times in the one day. First time by some.preacher guy who kept yelling Jesus loves u then that he hates her then Jesus loved her again. Then they ( 2 girls 1 boy) were harassed by a group of teenage boys in the park , and on the way home some guy yelled something out his car at her.
Apparently the other say while walking her sister to their dad's house someone yelled "emo bitch" at her out their car. She's 14 akd her sister is 10 .
I've " checked in " befire and she's never said anything but today she said that there's been lots of this shit
Shes asked a couple to leave her alone or told them to piss off but I can't encourage her to do that
I wish there was something we could do but we all know this is going to be going on fir decades
