Re: Are MBs the Beverly Hillbillies of bicycledom?
I was a commuter for several years. I always ride to the right of the right hand lane but far enough out to avoid road hazards and road trash. This puts me where a cars passenger tires would normally run. This means any cars behind me would have to exit MY lane in order to safely pass me. And understand this, it don't matter if the person in the car behind me is late or wtfever, it IS MY LANE. If they want to pass me then they should do it in a manner that does NOT put me at risk of bodily injury or worse.
I am not going to ride on main city streets but the roads I do ride have more than one lane going each way, unless I'm in a neighborhood. I ride for my own safety, not for some cagers imagined right to the roadway. If anyone don't like the way I ride I suggest they take public transportation.
