Will that affect bicycles ? A lot of our eastern European residents here cycle well above that speed on the pavement here !

Clearly another way of increasing revenue safety. When will children learn that roads are not playgrounds?

Unfortunately bicycles are not subject to speed limits as such.  A court ruled a few years ago that because they are not required to have a speedo there is no obligation on the rider to adhere to the limit.  Trust me, anyone who rides for long enough knows exactly what speed they are doing on a bike through feeling alone.

Anyone who rides on the pavement is a fool.  Anyone riding on a pavement that is shared use at 20mph needs a smack on the head.  This is why I rarely use them because of the risk my speeds pose to pedestrians (especially kids) I may come across.

Until the RTA is changed to cover bicycles then yes.  It still comes under the same laws from the 1800s introduced for horse and carriage.

Boy what a modern country we live in.
