Maybe it's for real if the Police cocked it up.
The road was closed, so don't see why they should.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice...

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

Some kind of advertising/marketing stunt???

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.
