Cycling while smoking or using a mobile phone is probably not, in itself, illegal. It is, however, STUPID and potentially DANGEROUS.

I agree, but there was something impressive about a woman I saw cycling through Lincolnshire the other week, obviously on her way to work (in overalls) and smoking like a steamtrain. None of that "I'm holding a fag in my hand and taking an occasional puff" nonsense, both hands were on the handlebars and the cigarette was being sucked to death with grim determination. I guess she was going to spend eight hours in a petrol station or one of those food factories where you're sacked if you go for a piss more than twice a day.

I'd be quite happy to allow adults to cycle on the pavement if they were forced to use an age 4-8 tricycle with My Little Pony decals and twinkly streamers on the handlebars, and one of those handles on the back to allow a grownup to stop them if they are going too fast.
