I'd guess they are raising the old boon-doggle about "obstructing traffic"
125 Unreasonably obstructing drivers or pedestrians
(1) A driver must not unreasonably obstruct the path of another driver or a pedestrian......
(2) For this rule, a driver does not unreasonably obstruct the path of another driver or a pedestrian only because—
(a) the driver is stopped in traffic; or
(b) the driver is driving more slowly than other vehicles (unless the driver is driving abnormally slow in the circumstances).
Someone riding a bicycle at 20kmh.... even 10kmh up a hill.... is not abnormally slow - so all those car drivers need to just suck it up!
Cyclists on "your road" are not obstructing traffic, they are traffic
