Cycling on Pavements

Alert message sent 25/11/2018 12:21:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


I would like to remind everyone that cycling on any pavements is an offence unless it is on a designated cycle path. This falls under Section 72 of the Highway Act 1835; which makes it an offence to ride or drive on any footpath. Please be mindful of other people when cycling, I appreciate that some roads can hazardous, but you need to acknowledge that the foot path is primarily for pedestrians. It has been reported that some cyclists have been "quite intimidating by riding at pedestrians".

Cyclists, please be aware-this is not acceptable and if caught a 50.00 fine can be issued.
