Hi, I'm new to the Forum. I love coming by train to the ten-pin bowling in the shopping centre with my kids. I don't like the traffic around the centre though. Here's a petition I signed recently about a so-called 'Quietway' for cyclists which will run from Elephant and Castle to Crystal Palace. I think it will be more of a 'noise-way' and make life harder for those of us who don't want to, or can't cycle- the ones who like catching buses and walking. I think the roads need to be shared properly and that if cyclists want the rights of their own routes, they need to take responsibility, like sticking to road rules, being accountable- maybe by having number plates, passing tests. And I don't want Southwark Council to reduce the number of buses to get us to cycle. So I signed this:
There's always space for another anti-cyclist, I expect.
Looking at the route quietway 7 I don't see how this will interfere with your rail trips to the bowling alley. The 'quietways' don't usually run along main bus routes either, as far as I know. I think they're just backstreet routes with blue bicycle signposts. Not even blue tarmac, on the one I'm familiar with.
I might start campaigning for pedestrians to stick to road rules, pass tests and display number plates.
