Re: Wondering about how to cope w/ traffic?
I live in Austin, a very bike friendly city.
I ride respectfully and haven't had too much problems with people being angry.
I had a motorcyclist block for me once when a car was riding me in the shoulder because they wanted to turn right, but that is the only memorable incident.
I also ride like nobody sees me, and I am the only responsible party on the road! I have had plenty of people turn right in front of me, as has anyone that rides a bike on a regular basis.
What I would like to get for those instances is an air horn! That would be pretty sweet up next to my front wheel on my MB, don't you think?
