Cyclists in packs found to be rough riders: study


„CYCLISTS riding together in packs can take on the characteristics of a „race without the officials“, with a new study suggesting they tend to hog lanes, ride side-by-side and ignore red lights.

The authors of Cyclist Bunch Riding: A Review Of The Literature from the Accident Research Centre at Monash University examined police video footage of a group of cyclists and saw behaviour one might expect from riders in the Tour de France.

The study found the behaviour of the cyclists breached all three cycling road rules included in the research. „The cyclists were riding more than two abreast for the entire footage, almost the whole ride the cyclists were in more than one lane, and almost half of the red lights faced were ridden through,“ the study reported.“ sydney morning herald

  1. I must be an outlier. I find it easier to take risks when on my own because I don’t have to worry about others just blindly following me 🙂
