Primrose Hill man fined for flouting Hampstead Heath’s cycling rules
A cyclist from Primrose Hill has been fined �315 for persistently flouting Hampstead Heath’s cycling rules.
Gad Hollander was hauled before magistrates for cycling across the beauty spot between Parliament Hill and Kenwood House on pedestrian pathways on several occasions.
He had already been spoken to by the Heath Constabulary once before he was given an official warning by an officer on November 9 last year.
On both occasions Hollander, from Gloucester Avenue, provided false details to the police.
The cyclist pleaded guilty to obstructing a constable in the execution of his duty and breaching the Heath’s byelaws at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on June 28.
