  3. Don’t move to the front through the middle of the bunch
  4. No overlapping wheels
  5. Signal if rolling off the front
  6. No reversing when standing up to pedal
  7. Make allowance for skill, and possible unpredictable riding of fellow riders
  8. Do not harass fellow riders
  9. Signal with your hand if overtaking
  10. Stay shoulder to shoulder, handlebar to handlebar with the riders around you
