            While I feel that it is good practice for cyclists to respect speed
            limits, I had always understood that speed limits do not apply to
            cyclists anywhere except the Royal Parks. However, I note that the
            March 2010 Park regulations redefine vehicle to be "a mechanically
            propelled vehicle intended or adapted for use on a road" and that a
            bicycle is a human propelled vehicle.

            Does that mean that cyclists cannot be issued with a fixed penalty
            notice or prosecuted for cycling at over 20mph in Greenwich Park?
