  1. Know who are the leaders (navigators) and sweepers of the group
  2. NEVER overtake the leader/navigator
  3. If you see the sweeper in front of you, shout out to him so that he knows you're left behind!
  4. Keep left of the road
  5. Try to keep to SINGLE FILE
  6. If there's cars behind you, NEVER look back while cycling.
  7. No funny stunts (esp don't weave left n right like Valentino Rossi — you're not him)
  8. Echo (echo… echo… echooo… echoooooooooooo) down/up the message
