    My method was mainly through the mediums of speech and the written word. And to be fair, this serves me just as well even in the video age.
    Same here. I'm pretty much guided by the theory that people f**k up. I'm not sure that someone who, in a brief loss of awareness, rubs there eyes and holds on to a bus handle deserves death by four million angry emojis.

      You're a moderator with that attitude! I'm many things but not an attention seeker
      You must be really shaken? But well done on your heroic jump to the grass verge which scuppered this evil lycra fiend.

      Do you still think you can catch aids from a toilet seat by the way?

      Constantly going round a roundabout?

      That would be very prickish behaviour.
      Just being on a bike is prickish behaviour to be fair.

      My view is pretty simple. If the space is there then use it.
      Why wouldn't you?

      Obviously when you have to go shopping you will end up being closer to people than almost any other time. So go to the shops as little as possible, and be as sensible as you can when there.

      If you can reduce a small risk to a tiny risk, by any actions at any time, why not do it? Step aside, move into space, pause for a moment to give people space.

      Ultimately the success or failure of the strategy is down to the accumulation of millions and millions of individual daily decisions. Of course one individual decision to pass close to someone will make no real difference. But millions of us all deciding that we won't make the effort might.

      I was out on the bike a few days ago and some old chap came past me. Puffing like a steam engine. Passed with just a couple of feet to spare, despite an empy road and the pulled in, right in front, ensuring that i got the full flow of whatever he was breathing out. I was thoroughly pissed off. Not really because I think it was a very high risk, but because it was entirely unnecessary.

      As a runner I’m in two minds. On the one hand, the runner should’ve at least been courteous, saying excuse me and thank you. On the other hand though, the OP was in no real danger and if you’ve walked in to a runners line, it takes far less energy for you to move aside than it would for him (the runner). At the end of the day the issue here is the lack of common courtesy, not the risk of infection.

      Reminds me of the pricks all geared up on their carbon bikes who tear along the seafront like they're at the Velodrome.
      But at least they’re not Palace fans masquerading as BHA on a Brighton message board eh?

      Tend to go really early in the morning so I don’t get in anyone’s way

      Saying that - the times I’ve gone during the day people out walking are equally dumb walking in a line together (in the park) taking up the whole pavement so runners/bikes etc can’t get by.
      I had this today on the Downs on the trail between Cisssbury Ring and Chanctonbury Ring, with a family (presumably) of four stretched right across the trail. They were going the same way as me, so couldn't see me coming.

      As I approached I gave a "beep beep" (I was mulling what to say to catch their attention, and this was the best I could come up with). They turned and it all became a bit Runaround as they quickly tried to stand aside, but chose different sides. I slowed whilst this played out, they came to a consensus, and I passed with a cheery "thanks!"
