The Code of Conduct for Training Cyclists states:
“It is recommended that groups do not exceed 20 cyclists in total
as it becomes extremely
difficult for other cyclists and motorists to ‘pass the bunch’.
”when cyclists breach
road rules...” in particular the “…cycling specific rule of riding two abreast
or three abreast when overtaking, other
road users become frustrated and take undue risks and/or show inappropriate
aggression often to other cyclists.”
