It is not surprising a young girl was recently knocked off her bicycle in Canal Street because of the irresponsible behaviour of another cyclist (Stourbridge News July 12).

Over the past few months, I'm sure many shoppers in Stourbridge High Street will have witnessed the bad behaviour by a group of young cyclists using the area as their playground. They take pleasure cycling down the street on the rear wheel of their bike and cycle up the street in the face of ongoing traffic.

I'm astonished this sort of behaviour has lasted so long without police intervention. If not stopped a major accident could result.
