Riding on pavements law and strange cycle lanes
Could someone tell me what the precise law about riding on pavements is?
Following cycle lanes in Bournemouth I'm bemused how sometimes a stretch of pavement will begin and end with cycle lane markings but have no markings inbetween. So I'm invited onto the stretch of pavement, and off, but as far as I can tell I'm not supposed to be in the middle which is a bit of a logic flaw.
There's been some local road improvements recently and they've painted cycle lanes across t-junctions, but not anything on the pavements along the main road. How am I supposed to use those cycle lanes across each junction if I'm not allowed to be on the pavement in the first place?
