I just read this joke; change motorcyclist to bicyclist:
God wants to reward an especially faithful christian motorcyclist.

God: "What would you like for a reward for your faith?"
Cyclist: "I want a bridge from CA to HI. I want ride my bike there."

God: "That's a little extravagant. The distance and depth of the ocean would be prohibitive."
Cyclist: "OK, you're right. How about giving me the wisdom to understand women?"

God: "Were you thinking a 2 lane bridge or a 4 lane bridge?

I actually caught myself overtaking a cop as I was starting down a hill. 37 at the moment in a 35. Needless to say I started slowing down. For the record my best speed on that hill is 45, so the potential is there I guess.

I think it's funny that so many people would like to get busted for speeding or trigger a speed camera on a bicycle, I was the same but for some reason googled it a while ago and because you don't need a licence to ride a bike there's no speed limit for them ... a least not on the UK anyway.

I believe speed limits apply to all vehicles, bicycles included - if not stated otherwise. At least here, and I had imagined it would be the same throughout EU.

Not bragging or anything like that...... But I only ride where the speed limit is posted at 55 mph. I very seldom have to worry about speeding violations that way. I can just enjoy the ride......

Might be an idea to do a bit of simple research before taking a directly opposing opinion to someone else and posting it in a forum**********

It wasn't a directly opposing opinion though.

However, since you kindly encouraged me to look it up, I found this under Rule 123 in https://www.gov.uk/guidance/the-high...58#speedlimits

*The 30 mph limit usually applies to all traffic on all roads with street lighting unless signs show otherwise.
So unless cyclists aren't regarded as traffic, speed limits in buit up areas apply to them as well. I am not a lawyer though, perhaps I'm interpreting this wrong.
