On the cycle paths, next to the River Clyde. Not on the road. Could a
dodgy plod come over and issue me a ticket?

Thanks.

Absolutely not. You are not required by law to wear a cycling helmet
anywhere in Britain, under any circumstances at all. If you are racing
under UCI rules, then you are required to wear a helmet; but only by the
UCI's rules, not by the law.


Thank you for your answer.

Always a possibility -- certainly anything is possible. Police think
they are above the law and think they can do anything they like.

See my earlier post regarding my friend's incident with the police.

An absolute worse than a police-state situation, what a sham!
