A Stomper spotted a large group of cyclists riding along Boon Lay Way on Saturday morning (Mar 25).

Stomper Lenard told Stomp that he saw them near Lakeside MRT Station.

He said: "I thought cyclists are no longer allowed to ride in such a big group?"

According to the Land Transport Authority (LTA), cyclists must keep to a maximum length of five bicycles when riding in groups, which means a maximum of five cyclists if riding in single file, or 10 cyclists if riding two abreast.

Cyclists are also encouraged to maintain a minimum distance of 30 metres or two lamp posts between groups when cycling in groups.
