    @Morningsider: thanks. I've no idea how valid the slant I've put on Management Rules is, but my logic was:
    - Land Reform Act is very important and a lynchpin of Scottish policy.
    - LRA specifically states that it can be altered by byelaws. It does not mention anything else.
    - Byelaws are more 'official' than Management Rules, which come from an older Act.
    - Therefore (with a massive leap of faith), Management Rules cannot restrict the LRA.

    Having briefly looked around, Edinburgh's Management Rules aren't too bad. Aberdeen's are worse than Glasgow.

    While in the relatively safe confines of empty hospital roads tonight*, I tried riding at a slow but comfortable pace and then looked at my Garmin - 8.5mph. Yes, I can ride safely at 5mph (I passed my Cycling Proficiency!) but it's not a good speed to ride at as you are concentrating more on balance than spatial awareness compared to riding at 10mph.

    In short, 5mph could actually be more dangerous on a bike than 10mph. Clearly, this was not thought through by anyone with real world cycling experience.

    *(Though not always safe as I experience twice in 20 seconds the other night).

    Bikes not allowed to be cycled in the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh a member of the staff was quick to point out to me, regarding the 3mph progress of my daughter on her *balance bike*...insisted we leave.
