Re: Is riding a bike on the road while pissed a crime?
Alfs - harsh.

My maternal grandfather - dead long before I was born - owned a fruit and veg stall. He had a horse and cart (this was between the wars). He was a dedicated pisshead. My grandfather, not the horse. His horse knew the way home, by all accounts, and my grandfather could fall asleep in his seat and still make it home safe and sound.

I like to think that's true and not a family tall tale, but I can't be sure.

Depends on what your hand signals are like.

I know a woman who was done for being drunk in charge of a horse and was banned from riding a horse on a public highway for a year.

As the great philosopher Ronald Corbett once said:

It's such a pity
the pubs in the City
all close at half past ten.
If I had the power
they'd close for an hour
and open up again.
I could get chronic
on vodka and tonic
till any time I like.
And while the policeman watched my car
I'd nip home on his bike.

I used to do this a lot.

Got freaked out of it when I hit the kerb and only just managed to avoid falling in front of a Chelsea tractor passing me at speed.

Walking and public transport for me now.

There isn't a blanket ban, no. IoC is correct - you just need winter tires in places (e.g. Quebec).

I used to cycle home from Chelmsford out to the sticks where I lived, after 5 or 6 hours of drinking.

A cop with a speed camera called me over, and I slurred that I wasn't speeding officer. He just told me to walk the rest of the way home! I got out of sight, and cycled of course

Re: Is riding a bike on the road while pissed a crime?
When I used to live in Radlett, the ex-village bobby used a Sinclair C5 to ramble about the village from his home to various local pubs then back again, pissed out of his tiny little.

He'd get stopped on a fairly regular basis but always let off because, according to the then-current village bobby, nobody actually knew how to classify what he was driving.

I assume either it was later classified and he was caught and banned, or he just died and was never seen again.

Depends if she's sober enough to consent.

Another great barnstormer of a thread!

Re: Is riding a bike on the road while pissed a crime?
As far as I'm aware it is still illegal and you can lose your license (drunk in charge of a vehicle)

Also works for lawnmowers and any other type of vehicle

Claypole - that hadn't occurred to me mate but you're correct of course. No, different bloke although Hungerford wasn't far away as the place in question was Stroud in Gloucestershire.

Isaac, go on, I'm intrigued, I don't remember the headline personally, and I have to say I'm amazed that you knew he had a bird called Lorraine.

The coppers that arrested him were two brothers, Jim & Andy Everly. They got him as he was double the limit, and giving a crossbar to his bird, Lorraine.

Do you remember the headline in the newspapers?

Re: Is riding a bike on the road while pissed a crime?
After that charge he went on to have a murderous rampage in Hungerford?

Does riding a bike across a zebra crossing make you a pedestrian?
