    Pavements are often split into bike and pedestrian sections?

    Cylists are allowed on pavement, don't let any bloody pedestrian tell you otherwise.

    In general bikes aren't allowed on pavements. If there are special markings for bikes, then take that as indication a cyclist can use them (crossings, cycle paths on pavements, etc). I imagine the crossings you have seen also have cycle paths on the pavement each side?

    You're kind of missing the OP's point .

    Anyway, this is when the pavement is divided up into cycle, walking sides...

    this isn't true actually they also have to stop at red lights if you have passed your driving test you should know this from the theory if not pick up a road theory book

    All I do when I reach a red light on my bicycle is to simply ride on the pavement then back down again. Or just go straight through it.

    I also like to ride the wrong way on cycle lanes and one way streets when it's shorter.

    The only bike paths on pavements are those which are small parts of bike paths, usually at the beginnings and ends.

    old people seem to mind it the most. anyone younger than 30 doesn't bat an eyelid when i go on pavements.
