Hey all,

Nothing too spectacular, I just thought I'd share it here because the noise makes it a bit comical. (check the right mirror)

Apparently he didn't see me stop.
I pulled over after to check on the guy but he was okay, not posting here because he was actually nice, he apologized and asked if I was okay. Thumbs Up
Second time somebody hits that top box, it has a lot of succes apparently Mr. Green

I'm a bit shocked to know there was a rider who doesn't look front. And those pedestrians walking across the road where they shouldn't. Is it normal in london? Why don't they use crossings?

No, it's not normal for London. Normally, the pedestrians would just walk out in front of you while tapping away on their phones, and the cyclist would have attacked you, and then posted the video up on YouTube claiming he'd been assaulted and was merely defending himself

Annoyingly this is quite common yes. Peds tend to cross wherever they want because car traffic is usually stopped and nobody wants to lose 10 sec of their day waiting for a crossing light I guess ... especially at rush hour.
My guilty pleasure is honking at peds who crossed but didn't see the traffic was about to go and end up stuck between the two lanes.

All. The. Fucking. Time.
I'm always at the ready for peds to suddenly appear - they often pop out between cars when you're 10 metres from a crossing (the cars have stopped, the ped doesn't want to miss the opportunity to cross the road and thus jumps straight out in front of you)

Is it just me that sees the guy launch a haymaker at your top-box?

I watched it about 5 times not knowing what was going on and thinking wtf the woman was doing. Then read the bit about the top box and was looking for any other pedestrians crossing then finally saw it Laughing

Genuinely thought the woman wanted a ride and that was why you shouldn't stop.

That makes sense, and then some cyclist behind got jelly and decided to jump on the pillion seat through the topbox first. Mr. Green
I think the main reason you shouldn't stop for peds in london is because they'll throw acid at you and steal your bike Thumbs Up
