"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
Are *all* vehicles banned from Bridge Street? I can't think of any reason why you'd permit motor vehicles yet ban bicycles. What about horse drawn carriages? Motorcycles?
I'm guessing they shut down the central part of town and make it ped-only during the day.
I can see banning bicycles in market areas where cars have been banned as well. If you have ever been to an English market town during the day or weekends, there are clearly no place for bicycles as the places are full of pedestrians wandering at random.

Given the "wardens" appear to be marching down the middle of the street, I am thinking this must be a pedestrian-only route. Fair enough I guess.
