Is it illegal to ride a bicycle on the path?

Is cycling drunk illegal?
It is illegal to ride your bike under the influence of drink or drugs, and you would be guilty of this if you were unfit to ride to such an extent as you are incapable of having proper control of the bicycle. You would be committing an offence whether you were on a footpath or on the road.
Is cycling with headphones illegal?
