Only 10, had a group of close 20 drop in front of me off Canning Bridge. Not happy riding at the back of a bunch I did not know, who where not communicating well, and though mainly in single column doing 35+kph, they where a few riding two abreast but at least close together. Did not react when I went past. Expect somebody to chase bloke commuting on TT bike.
Seriously, I ride that section of the PSP 3 or 4 times a week between 8 & 9am and maybe once a month do I run into a group of more than 4, and rarely do they cause problems.
I have far more problems with pedestrians on the Mount Henry to Canning Bridge section, like coming round a corner to find 6 pedestrians stopped having a chat & blocking 2/3 of the PSP with a person walking their dog and a slow moving MTB coming from the opposite direction.
Canning to Narrows on the PSP is part of the river loop, so you expect groups, as long as the ride safe and sensible I have no issues. I do have problems with the odd group who believes they own the PSP, but I am seeing less of that now than a couple of years ago.
