Floom,..take a deep breath and relax. Some of your comments regarding aggresive cyclists were quite valid, and I know how inconvenient push-chairs can be..... But, we all have to try and live our lives. I mean, this wasn't a group of mothers who deliberately decided to get on the same bus to see how...

I can see where Floom is coming from. I am a rural cyclist and a pedestrian when in the city, so I will try and make a reasoned and balanced comment. I have nearly been hit, i would say around 5 times by cyclists , whilst legitimately using a pedestrian crossing in Sydenham. I have also been regular...

Ref: posting by leaf. Yes i would agree that getting to Bell Green might seem an easier option from Kikdale (by bus). However, this doesn't take into account the resultant increased traffic levels at the pinch points in the area.(Cobbs Corner being a case in point) Though the delay may not prove as ...

Bell Green

Not wishing this subject to become the 'lets argue with Greg' thread, but I don't think the syd socs objections were raised in oder to instigate damage limitation.

I would consider myself a very personable/sociable individual, though normally quite introverted. Obviously i am a newcomer to this site (my 3rd Post), but it does seem a shame that we have so many visitors to the site, but not very many people posting their opinions.
