Dont tar us all with the same brush!
As a cyclist in the suburbs, I obey traffic lights, allow the bus to pull out if he is indicating rather than just go around and where safe to do so I will pull over to allow buses to pass me (although I usually catch them at their next stop and go around again!).
Whilst on a bus the other week during the morning rush at the Elephant some of the cyclists behaviour and road 'sense' was terrifiying!
Chris I have no problem with the majority of cyclists, it's the ones that have no road sense that I have problems with...I have had them literally stop in front of me or zig zag down the road....the other night I had one come from the inside lane at London Road right across the front of me at the Elephant an castle roundabout, as I was already in the outside lane I wash;t able to go round him so I moved to the inside (as it was almost hugging the outside curb) then as I we went to turn down Newington Butts he cut back across the front of me again!!!! He then had the cheek to have a go at me!!!!
You should try getting through Elephant in the AM peak - it's like Saigon some mornings! Mind you it's not as bad as when I was on the 19 and had to put up with the Bikeys down along Rosebery Avenue and Theobalds Road as they really were arrogant, In fact I found a lot of the people on that route like that too which leads me on to an unrelated question.....do any fellow South Londoners find North Londoners to be arrogant [expletive removed]'s?
