As also asked, why the reluctance to ride with lights.... I have lights even for daytime.... it's surprising how a cyclist can disappear in some lighting conditions and backgrounds.
To be fair its only illegal if you ride on adopted roads, [...]
I don't think that's correct.
The lighting regs are given effect by the Road Traffic Act 1988 https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/198 ... ction/made
That act applies the regs to all use "on roads" https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1988/52/section/41
"Road" "means any highway and any other road to which the public has access, and includes bridges over which a road passes" https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/19 ... ection/192
There is no requirement the road is adopted, is there?
This seems similar to the pernicious myth that you can't be done for drink-driving on an unadopted road. You can and people have been.
