In Britain today, the newspapers printed photos of Sir Paul and Heather's seaside bike ride through Hove. It seems the couple were riding their mountain bikes in a no-cycle zone. According to an onlooker:"They rode straight past the signs saying no cycling and looked like they didn't have a care in the world. They rode straight past the signs warning of pounds 500 fines. They weren't in a hurry to go anywhere.Sir Paul, dressed casually in a sweatshirt, shorts, and sandals, was recognized by many seaside walkers. Heather wore pink pedal pushers, a blue jacket , and a large floppy hat. The couple cycled along the Brighton promenade to the pier before stopping for a cold drink and a snack at a sea front cafe.
"Sir Paul was obviously enjoying himself - he was smiling at his wife while they rode along. They didn't seem to be in a hurry to get anywhere, they went the length of the prom very slowly. Maybe they didn't know you're not supposed to ride a bike there but people have been fined for it."
