No cycling on pavements

This is a polite reminder to all cyclists to not cycle on pavements. We have recently received reports from residents of cyclists cycling on pavements within the village. This is both dangerous and unlawful and could result in a fixed penalty notice (on the spot fine) should the Police witness this.

We appreciate that on occasion cyclists who are concerned about their own safety (or their children's safety) out of fear of the traffic, may choose to cycle on pavements. Should cyclists do this then we ask that they are respectful of pedestrians. Recent reports suggest that this hasn't been the case and the cyclist's behaviour could have endangered pedestrians and/or resulted in nasty accidents.

The Parish Council would like to thank you for your co-operation.
