On a local Facebook group I made the point speed limits do not apply to cyclists (someone was moaning about cyclists going way over the speed limit). Someone else has come back pointing to rule 69 of the Highway Code Under 'Rules for cyclists' Rule 69 You MUST obey all traffic signs and traffic light signals. Does this not include speed limits? Surely a 40mph sign is a traffic sign and cyclists can't go above it? Just trying to back up statements I make with evidence.
