    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    the pic shows them three wide across the road.
    also the law says that they must be in single file if there is traffic behind them.

    they are arrogant nut jobs that use the excuse of "if you hit us we will be injured/killed so you will be in big trouble, therefore we can do what we like and you have to keep out of our way".
    btw most tourists on bikes ride single file and are great. its just the locals that cop an attitude.

    The road code says it all really.

    Some dont give a damn, the amount of times people on bikes almost get hit because they think the road rules don't apply to them, like going straight through red lights.

    There a few crossings in town, they don't stop or even slow down if someone's already on the crossing legally, they just barge through knocking people over if they are not quick enough.

    Always ride as near as you can to the left side of the road. If you are holding back traffic you must move as far as possible to the left side of the road to allow traffic to pass, as soon as you can. However, you do need to cycle in a sensible position on the road to keep safe. See Cyclist responsibilities for more information.
    Two cyclists can ride next to each other but should take into account the keep left rule and not hold back traffic. Three or more people cycling next to each other is illegal, except in the case of a road race that has been given traffic management approval from a road controlling authority.
    Ride in single file when passing vehicles.

    If they are biking side by side I pass with millimeters to spare although I air horn them before passing to warn them. I call them road parasites as they run red lights.

    We saw one a few weeks back, cars and trucks stopped at lights, some dumb ass cyclist tried to run the lights by undertaking a truck , didn't see the stopped car just in front of him -- bam - right up his date. He did bounce quite.
