Who cares what you were taught at school. I doubt any child picks it up 1st time. It's clearly an issue and that's why Mark R and Lib Dems are looking into it. Believe it or not there are probably smarter people than you who get it wrong. Still you did agree with most of my points....ironic.

The fact that you "can't help relishing the idea of annoying further the likes of some of the very opinionated contributors here" says more about you than about those contributors. I for one decided to stay away from the "Red Light" topic because I'd said what I wanted to say and it wasn't going anywhere anymore. BTW I got my bike out recently - I have decided that bullies won't deprive me of the pleasure of cycling. I will continue to behave exemplary towards other road users and fellow cyclists that cross my path better do the same. That's all, I won't come back to this thread either, but I do agree that Tim's post was the most sensible on here and I did find Guy Street's last response quite reasonable as well.Reading this thread makes me think the whole forum should be shut down! It even makes me want to go and join this running club, not something I would normally consider...But I can't help relishing the idea of annoying further the likes of some of the very opinionated contributors here. Of course if I do join, be warned, I'll be cycling to get there.

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.
While I agree with most of what you say, can I just point out that you are wrong to state "cyclists coming down the wrong way on a one way street" in relation to Bermondsey St. It is only one way for motorised traffic - for cyclists it is as much one way as it is for pedestrians.
