I'm originally from Canada, where the police presence on street is far different to here. Police will catch you not stopping at stop signs, speeding, parking in the wrong spot...All these fines go to…Continue

"Of course they'll keep doing this until one of the gas fuelled catering chalets goes up in flames and we have a massive evacuation debacle - or this plays into the hands of those who seek to score the next terrorist attack... The way to manage…"

"I would not want to squeeze through this on a bike. You think how crowded this place gets in the past years, these narrow barriers wont help at all really. "

"There was a report in the local news the tram killed a pedestrian on Corp Street. Last time I checked not one cyclist has killed OR hurt a pedestrian in the crowded street of Corp St. So why are the city council being ridiculous and sad by banning…"

"Yes I definitely see a few people overreacting to seeing a bike, leaping to one side, etc. I really wouldn't be cycling through this pedestrian area unless I could help it."

"When wheeling my bikes - particularly the recumbents with their delicate lights / chainring guards and knobbly pedals at prime walking-into height - through crowded areas like station forecourts (but not platforms!) I tend to switch the lights on,…"

"Then again this sign has been up in Pitlochry for well over 20 years and the Hong Kong Highway code has had the other sign for well over 30 years. "

"I recall the TRRL study Cycling in Pedestrian Areas* which reported just ONE adverse interaction (and that was a child on a bike, likely to be less experienced in riding through a pedestrian area) in thousands of hours of recorded material. It also…"

ARKrider replied to Hanah's discussion Metro construction around Victoria Square
"I agree. It makes sense NOT to push a bike at crowded places like Christmas Market because pushing it it means you have to stand aside it so it takes up 3-4 people spaces. Where as sitting on it and riding/rolling it, only takes up about 2 IF THAT…"

"I am in exactly the same position, including the squeaky brakes - I find it makes people jump out of their skin if you brake just behind them but like you I try to smile and say excuse me a lot. I'm sure some pedestrians would prefer me to…"

"I've managed through so far coming up navigation and making my way via new street to Bennet Hill inbound and Temple is it, out bound (going around Waterloo and just going around the barrier).  I kind of just scoot the bike around the New…"

"Didn't have a problem this morning but had to mount the pavement to get around them this evening. Might have to detour my route via Broad Street in future."

"I got bad news now!  The gates on Temple Row and Bennet Hill are now shut. (I assume they will be open in morning for truck deliveries) But I tried going through tonight, and the gates were shut. I walked past earlier in the afternoon and it…"

"It appears that wherever you go in Birmingham anymore everything is banned to cycling or closed! Its ludicrous what this city is doing! A lot of this would not be happening if the metro was not being built! There is no need for it really. How…"

"Is there not sufficient width in the canal there to place a pontoon and by-pass the worksite, whilst still allowing boats to pass?"

"They could put in a ferry. A few pallets and a rope would do. It's closed between 9.30 and 3.30 I think."
