Can I still be a cyclist if I have read and understand the Highway Code?
I mean, I don't jump lights or ride on the pavement or ride three abreast. Surely if I am a considerate road user I can not call myself a cyclist?

No, the other cyclists will reject and shun you if you are caught waiting for a red light.

It’s also like bowling. A strike is easier than hitting a single pin.

Yes you could read it (if you can actually read) and call yourself a cyclist. Many road users in and on all types of transport are considerate, some of us are not.

For 50 mph and above: No way.
For 45 mph: Pretty risky.
For 40 mph safest.

I smell an anonymous troll here. We true cyclist obey all traffic laws which apply to us. People on bicycles who don't obey traffic laws aren't cyclist; they are idiots. We despise them because they cause narrow minded biased anonymous trolls like you to think cyclist don't obey traffic laws and are inconsiderate to other road users.Source(s): Motorized Bicycle Owner and Builder.

If you are a cyclist in the UK you should have read and understood the relevant parts of the Highway Code.
