Shocking Moment Cyclists caught driving on TWO different highways on the same day

ROAD Cycling is a popular pastime in the UK, but a cyclist has gone too far after being caught on the motorway.

But not just a highway; After being caught by police, the same cyclist was found just an hour later on another main road.

The cyclist was caught on the M25 and M1

Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Police tweeted an image showing the cyclist’s bike leaning against the hard shoulder of a motorway.

They said: “This cyclist was found with that M25 be alerted and reported earlier, in the event of a crime, and safely routed away from the M/Way network.”

It appears the cyclist was not listening as shortly afterwards they were found riding on another of Britain’s busiest roads.

The tweet continues: “About 1 hour later you’ll find her again this time with M1! Stopped, reported for further offenses and escorted to a safe location.”

The driver has been fined £400 for being'too close' to the cyclist - but not everyone agrees

Cyclists are prohibited on highways under Rule 253 of the Highway Code.

This part of the Code states: “Motorways MUST NOT be used by pedestrians, motorcycle provisional license holders, riders of motorcycles under 50cc (4kW), cyclists, horse riders, certain slow moving vehicles and persons transporting oversized loads (unless with special permission) agricultural vehicles and electric wheelchairs/scooters.

It’s not the first time cyclists have been spotted on the Autobahn.

Just last month, a Just Eat driver was found on the M6, leaving drivers baffled.

However, it is rare for a cyclist to be found and stopped on one freeway, only to veer straight onto another.

It comes after new Highway Code rules for cyclists came into force earlier this year, leaving drivers confused.

These rules state that cyclists should ride on quiet roads, in slower traffic and at mid-road intersections to ensure they are more visible.

The update also states that cyclists should keep a 0.5m distance from the curb when riding on busy roads or in faster traffic.
