THE Star headline referring to the recent correspondence on cycling on pavements was headed “Cycling Debate”.

However, there is no debate and the rules are clear.

If there isn’t a sign saying it’s a shared footpath or there’s no cycle path on it, then you can’t ride a bicycle on it.

The highway code is short and sweet on this:

Highway Code, Rules for Cyclists: 64 You MUST NOT cycle on a pavement.

Let’s end this now.
