Drafting - keep at least three bike lengths of clear space between you and the cyclist in front. If you move into the zone, you must pass within 15 seconds.

Position - keep to the right hand side of the lane of travel unless passing. Illegal Pass-- cyclists must pass on the left, not on the right.

Overtaken - once passed, you must immediately exit the draft zone from the rear, before attempting to pass again.

Penalty: Time penalty
