Maybe it's for real if the Police cocked it up.

The road was closed, so don't see why they should.

there is no speed limit for cyclists, as they're not required by law to fit a speedometer.

I just read it as a tongue in cheek comment on how fast Dowsett was.

I don't suppose they'll mind the extra traffic to the site though...

Just to add to Dave's comment, it is not possible to break the speed limit on a bicycle - however fast you manage to get up to. This is because there is a requirement in the legislation that the vehicle you are travelling in/on is motorised.
