Town centre cycling restrictions

A Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) has been put in place following consultation suggesting that reckless riding of bicycles in Bedford town centre was reducing the quality of life of residents.

The PSPO restricts cyclists from riding bikes through the main pedestrian area of Bedford Town Centre from 9am to 6pm.

A penalty of £75 may be issued by a police officer or authorised person to anyone cycling through the main pedestrian area from 9am to 6pm.

The PSPO came into force 19 June 2019.
