FOI Request Speeding Cyclists

Request 101001511940

The Highway Code and the Road Traffic Act speeding limits apply only to motor vehicles and their drivers.

However, it is possible for local authorities to impose speed limits on cyclists.

Can you advise if the council have any bylaws in place that specifically state the limit and the penalty for a cyclist breaching that limit?

Having checked with our Legal Team we can confirm that we currently have no bylaws in place that restrict the speed of cyclists and we are not working on any projects that involve the introduction of such a bylaw.
