"Thanks to the behaviour of certain cyclists I have been turned against cycling so thanks very much to the ignorant London idiots who continue to give cycling a bad name."
I do not condone cyclists jumping red lights at all.
Infact it makes me mad when I've stopped legally, then are harassed by illegal motorists, then a cyclist goes past on red!.
The irony of jumping red lights is lost on many drivers I chat to from within the ASL's after they have entered on red and in law "jumped the lights." The law is meant to be there for all, motorists too
But by your logic above I assume you now detest, Car, lorry, bus, and taxi drivers to name but a few,
as well as..... dog walkers. ( I assume your dog is always kept under control). I often have more sympathy with the dog than the owners.
There are many "ignorent" people out there not just cyclists.
Birmingham is no different, have you cycled down the Bristol Road in the rush hour?
