I have been asked to remind you where you can and can’t ride, as there have been many near accidents caused by cyclists riding on the pavement.

I do realise that in Tower Hamlets some of the cycle paths are not marked (such as the one on Bethnal Green Road between St. Mathews Row/Turin Street and Chilton Street), and this causes cyclists to be unsure whether a pavement is a cycle path or not. This is down to Tower Hamlets Council.

The main complaints, however, come from pedestrians having to avoid the more careless riders who don’t seem to care which pavement they race along, which as well as being a danger to pedestrians, creates a bad reputation for responsible cyclists.

Therefore please remember – it is illegal to ride on any pavement unless it is clearly marked as a cycle path. This could result in a fine, or even worse, a serious accident!
