What is cycling really? From Law point of view
Sorry if this was discussed and answered before but I couldn't find the thread or answer. :-(
I'm wondering what cycling is really. I was recently stopped by met police for cycling on pavement. I was not technically cycling. I was walking alongside my bike but when there were few yards of free space (no pedestrians) I stepped on one pedal and pushed myself forward (pretty much like this kid. Sorry for using google images. http://www.blogcdn.com/www.parentdish.co.uk/media/2012/06/child-on-scooter-alamy1.jpg ). I argued that I was not cycling - at most barely "scootering" but eventually - you know cops - had to accept the ticket.
This raised the question. What is cycling? Is there any kind of definition? I couldn't find. If the action of pushing myself forward is cycling, they should give ticket to every kid on the scooter?
