Riding as he was is not very smart. I ride just to the left of the shoulder white line if there is one. That's where he should be riding. Riding too far to the right puts the cyclist in danger of broken pavement, storm sewer grates, road debris, and leaves no room for them should they need to make an evasive maneuver to avoid something on the extreme shoulder.2nd amendment - they were in the middle of the right hand lane (although I have seen people pedal down the middle).
What made it so [email protected] scary was that the tractor trailer was blowing its horn and the guy was turning to respond, it was a mess. Fortunately I was in the left lane and was able to get away from the whole scene.
I have also seen people pass on the right (shoulder of the road) to get around this cyclist. It is an accident waiting to happen.
My distance is too far and the roads I need to take not conducive to cycling. I start the day with a cardio walk instead!
I used to commute 15 miles to work but now I have no shower where I work so I drive.
