Motorists don’t always get it. Neither do cyclists. In a misguided effort at courtesy we sometimes put ourselves at risk by refusing to take the lane when appropriate. Sometimes that means riding too close to parked cars, riding to close to the shoulder encouraging passing by motorists when there’s really not enough room. This Facebook image does a good job of explaining to both cyclists and motorists what is going on.
And it is a slideshow with some interesting additional images of bikes and biyclists.–Corrie
