ACCORDING to the law and the Highway Code (Highways Act 1835 section 72 and Road Safety Act 1984 section 129), cyclists musts not cycle on the pavement. Bicycles are considered vehicles under British law with a fixed penalty of £500 for cycling on a pavement unless cycling on a designated dual cyclist/pedestrian route.

Cyclists can use bus lanes where permitted to do so.

This is a law which should be made more widely known to cyclists.
