The Code of Conduct for Training Cyclists recommends a maximum bunch size of 20 riders.


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’.             


The CycleSport Victoria and Amy Gillett Foundation submission to Coroner Johnstone states:



”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.”

Riding two abreast

Road Rule 151: Bike riders must not ride alongside more than one other rider in a single marked lane or on any part of a road that is not a multi-lane road unless the bike rider is overtaking another bike rider.

On multi-lane roads, marked lane (and regardless of whether the road is a multi-lane road or any other sort of road), bike riders in that marked lane must not ride more than 1.5 metres apart.

Tip: When riding two abreast bike riders cannot (as stated) ride more than two abreast in any single marked lane on that road

(unless, as stated, overtaking another bike rider) but may ride more than two abreast across multiple lanes.

If riding in the same please consider other road users and, if necessary, change to single file to allow drivers to overtake safely.
