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

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

Last night I would have considered trading a very loud baby for a really nice bike.

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.
