South Bank cycling
Can you tell me if cycling is permitted along the South Bank outside City Hall? I ask as it is my understanding that it is, however I was stopped earlier today by a man in a blue fleece and carrying a walkie-talkie who instructed me that I should walk as cycling was forbidden.
It had been against the law to cycle on this stretch of the South Bank "from day one" he said. I don't know who this man was, but my impression was he was a secuirty guard either in City Hall or one of the neighbouring buildings.
I phoned TfL and was told that there are no restrictions on cycling in this area, but to be honest, the guy on the phone didn't sound too sure.
Is he correct?
