IMO, the only reason the Highway Code advises cyclists to dismount, is not that riding across is a problem, but that they gain the priority accorded to pedestrian status when they do so. The law clearly gives pedestrians priority on a crossing. The status of a cyclist riding across is unclear until a legal precedent is set (i.e. someone brings a case to court).
This has however changed in law for parallel cycle lanes across zebras but both highway code and road markings are slow to change. https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/201 ... ph/22/made
It would have been better if the law had changed to simply make all zebras like that IMO.
