What's all the fuss about? People have always ridden their cycles along the sea wall.
Owing to the restricted space on the sea wall and the sheer drop, cyclists are a danger to themselves and law-abiding people who walk/jog along the route. Well done to the police for acting on the growing concerns about a selfish minority of cyclists. To be fair, most cyclists realise that councils have bent over backwards to provide cycle lanes, expensive scenic routes (Powderham - Turf) so they leave the sea wall to walkers, but I suppose you always get a few morons who want to push their luck even further.
