I have had bad experience with my children on Bermondsey street who struggle enough to stay safe on the pavement without being bumped off by runners or cyclists coming down the wrong way on a one way street. Then the amount of abuse I have seen from cyclists towards those who are clearly unaware and a little confused about cyclists coming the other way is just staggering. I don't believe anyone is malicously stepping in their path. My children are locals but still struggle to understand the concept of cars coming one way and that's their focus.
However, I have met Tim on several occasions, the first being when he set this club up. He said he had 12 members and hoped to be at about 30. What I can say about Tim is that he is a very genuine, sincere and caring guy. He would be disappointed to know members of his group were causing such disruption and he will stand by his actions above. Which can be all to rare in good ole London town.

That's what I was taught at school.To a child and a 1st time visitor it's a one way street. Whether I'm wrong or what ever, to non locals and children it's confusing and they are not aware, but you prove another point .....
