Find linked a good article which explains methods of cycling safely in a bunch/group of riders. This is worth a read regardless of experience but is especially important for novices to bunch riding. Thanks to Aidan Ryan/Stickybottle.com

Congratulations to Sean Lally who won the Road Race League 2013
after a long season of hard racing. In joint second place were
John Walsh and Peter Schweppe.
Whilst Sean and Peter are household names, John is only in his first year of racing. Great achievement!
Well done to all riders who made the racing competitive and ensured a close finish to a hard fought league.
Thanks also to all marshals who took their obligations seriously and completed the necessary tasks in a satisfactory manner.
We should always remember that there would be
no racing if there were no marshals.
