The policeman asked: “Why are you cycling on a pavement?” to which Mr Diego replied, “This is a path, a path for bikes.”
Realising his error of judgement, the policeman smirked “Sorry, I can’t see the cycle path.”
Mr Diego laughed off the incident: “The cop, although a bit blind, had a good sense of humour. He smiled when he realised he made a silly mistake.”
So keep riding on those designated cycle paths, folks.
