That's because this is a cycling group, not a driving group or a
schoolchildren group. Therefore your post is OT yet again.

Cyclists cannot 'speed' (except in Royal Parks, and other places with'
special' legislation).

Not in Royal Parks either since the 2010 amendment to the regulations.
So it is now only a theoretical possibility, if somewhere were to have
a local act, and as far as I know nowhere actually does.

ITYF the Royal Parks thing has probably been fixed by The Royal Parks
and Other Open Spaces (Amendment) etc. Regulations 2010 which has
changed relevant parts from "vehicles" to "motor vehicles". There may
be local byelaws somewhere that impose speed restrictions on pedal
cycles, but nobody seems to know of any.
There is still the infamous "pedalling furiously" (Offences Against The
Person Act 1861 has been applied to pedal cycles, but there has never
been an actual offence of "pedalling/cycling furiously").
There are specific "dangerous cycling" and "careless and inconsiderate
cycling" offences (Road Traffic Act 1988). Daniel Cadden's is the only
case I can find of the latter (dismissed "no case to answer" on
appeal), and Jason Howard's (death of Rhiannon Bennett) the former.

I stand corrected. One area of the law I need to brush up.

Which cyclists are "persecuted"?

And by whom?

Not once, ttbomk.
Riding fairly fast, yes - but speeding is not an offence for a
cyclist.



Poor old nut job.

Here is a clue: the verb to speed does not relate specifically to speed limits
and the law - and no one claimed that a speeding cyclist was breaking the law

people's lives by dangerous driving, book him to take your kids on a
trip, then report him for kiddy-fiddling. He'll never drive a taxi
