@MyCycleRide I’m not saying it’s a logical position, just that it’s commonly held. Anyway, I must work. Nice chatting. Happy cycling :)
@MyCycleRide I can’t remember now :) But I’d say cyclists’ infringements are more noticeable - and so each one gives cyclists a worse name.
@MyCycleRide Sure. The goodness or badness of car drivers is not the issue.
@MyCycleRide Sure. Speed-limit-breaking car drivers are bad and wrong. Doesn’t make cyclists any better :)
@MyCycleRide 20-40% still seems a crazy high percentage to me.
@MyCycleRide Yeah - when there’s a queue, it only takes the two at the front to stop and everyone else must do :)
@MyCycleRide I imagine the % varies a lot across junctions - visibility, business, what others tend to do etc.
@MyCycleRide I can’t believe anyone would think it’s a rare issue :) I keep meaning to watch with a notepad sometime, do some counting.
@MyCycleRide No I don’t film my rides. Yes, I’ve been cycling in London for over 20 years.
@edspindrift So you don’t have a defence for pavement cycling or going the wrong way? Yeah, there are worse things, doesn’t make them right.
@MyCycleRide We must cycle in different places :) This morning I saw loads of cyclists going through reds. At one 4 went through, I waited.
@edspindrift Cyclists on pavements or going the wrong way, because they ignore the instruction, are doing nothing wrong?
@MyCycleRide Yes, of course! But I’m so often the only cyclist left waiting at a red light while others go on ahead.
@edspindrift Oooh, personal insults too. You are clever.
@edspindrift Lovely talking to you until you resorted to talking nonsense rather than put up a good argument. Have a nice day!
@edspindrift Cyclists ignoring them usually end up cycling on pavements, or the wrong way down streets, in my experience. Which is wrong.
@edspindrift I can do this all day. I’m a cyclist but I despair of the selfish, inconsiderate nature of many of my fellow cyclists.
@edspindrift Because cyclists are more agile, can stop quicker, cause less damage if they hit someone?
@edspindrift Oh, so something is only “wrong” if it’s illegal? Maybe cyclists could just be more… polite and considerate? Would that be bad?
@edspindrift If I go out on any road in central London and watch the cyclists and drivers, it’s definitely more the cyclists.
When will something be done to tackle the shocking levels of illiteracy and red/green colourblindness in London’s cyclists? Poor things.
Is there a less effective instruction in English than “Cyclists dismount”? #rhetorical
