  • A typical complaint from motorists, and even from some of my fellow driving instructors,

  • is that cyclists ride two abreast. Well, according to the Highway Code they can!

  • Blaine's right. According to rule 66 in the Highway Code cyclists are advised tonever

  • ride more than two abreast.' So, three's out but riding side by side is fine.

  • Think of it like this. In your car you have the driver's seat and the passenger seat,

  • that makes a car suitable for two people to travel next to each other. Cyclists riding

  • next to each other are doing the same thing, maybe chatting, just like you would do in a

  • car.

  • But the Highway Code is not without its quirks. Rule 66 adds that cyclists shouldride

  • in single file on narrow or busy roads and when riding round bendsbut it doesn't

  • define how narrow or how busy or how curved the bend is supposed to be.

  • Rule 169 of the Highway Code says slow-moving vehicles shouldnot hold up a long queue

  • of traffic” – cyclists will thin out into single file when it is safe for cars to pass.

  • If it's the most appropriate action. Let's stop

  • the action here. This group of eight riders takes up maybe ten metres of roadspace, and

  • that allows for a quick overtake. Now look at the length of eight riders riding in single

  • file. That's about twenty metres which means spending more time on the other side of the

  • road, which is less safe for the overtaking motorist.

  • Whether cyclists are riding single file or two by two you still have to give them ample

  • room when overtaking.
