Aggressive Bicyclists

I'm sure most in Westchester are familiar with road bicyclists that rides in packs in Westchester on the weekend.

Granted, it is our responsibility to share the road, but some of these groups ride, as "packs", very, very aggresively at high speed, often ignoring traffic rules themselves, and putting themselves in great danger, especially on narrow roads where curves make visibilty dangerous.

I'm curious, is there any regulation to this? Sometimes, the groups number 30 or more, and cut off or cause traffic disruption, and place themselves in great harm.

One of the places I often see these types of cyclists ride is Route 22 between North White Plains and Armonk. Coincidentally, I often hear of bicyclists struck in this area.
