Race Rules

Drafting
Keep at least three bike lengths of clear space between you and the cyclist in front of you. If you pass the person in front of you (“enter the zone”), you must do so within 15 seconds.

Position
You must remain to the right hand side of the bike lane of travel unless you are passing the cyclist in front of you.

Blocking
You may not ride on the left side of the lane if you are not passing anyone. This interferes with other cyclists who are attempting to pass.

Overtaking
If someone passes you, you must immediately exit the draft zone from the rear (e.g. slow down so there are at least three bike lengths in front of you) before attempting to pass again.

Headphones
​No headsets, radio and/or headphones are allowed.
