The 18Km/h rule
During a training ride at the weekend I was stop by a very friendly member of our police service. It was just after 8am and I was riding down a desert stretch of shared cycle path and walkway next to a very busy main road.
He politely informed me that shouldn't be using the cycle path because I was visibly going faster than 18km/h (weird firstly as all UK speed limits are figured in MPH not KM/H, even if it was MPH I still could have been fingered to be honest)
I didn't know that this was a thing, I've been commuting for years using shared paths and never heard of this.
Has anyone else heard of this?
