The chief has warned them before to stagger their groups so that cars would not have to drive into the oncoming lane

RYE, NH — A pack of bicyclists racing down Ocean Boulevard in Rye, New Hampshire raced right past Rye Police Chief Kevin Walsh who was telling them to stop.

Video of the incident was apparently taken by one of the bicyclists and uploaded to YouTube. On state roads, Walsh says two cyclists can ride side by side and then single file when traffic is coming, but says this group was up to five across.

After the cyclists passed by and did not stop, the chief says he got into his cruiser, drove four miles to catch up with them, and then a confrontation took place.
