Shame that Alvin Stardust has passed away - he could have filmed an updated green cross code film with cyclists in it.

Actually, do you ever see people in lycra (the villains!) riding on the pavement?


Precisely. If you're wearing Lycra you are likely doing 20mph. At this speed you shouldn't actually be using even shared cycle path, let alone the pavement. Doesn't stop drivers hooting me and shouting 'get on the pavement' sometimes!

I wear lycra to cycle around London - but it has no bearing on my speed. I wear it because it wicks moisture away from the skin so when I get changed at the other end I'm not covered in sweat.

Then you must be doing enough speed to sweat....

Yes, apparently so.
What is the threshold, out of interest?
