Bicycle lane question

I have a question following a recent conversation about bike lanes. The law in SA makes it clear that you must ride in a bicycle lane when one is provided (with exceptions like avoiding hazards, etc.), but what about timed bike lanes? If it is outside the hours of operation of the bike lane, is a cyclist still required to ride in it?I'm not asking if it is safer, a good idea to, or just courtesy, but where does the law stand? Could you be fined for riding outside a non-operating bicycle lane?See More

Thanks Henry! I gave Vince a call. I would be interested in the M size - does it have a team name? My phone number is 0408 741 130 if that's easier. Thanks and regards, Chris
