That's the core of it for me and it infuriates me when these guys brag how they 'calmed' traffic.

Legal or not, IMO, a bicycle has no business on a major artery at 1700h effectively reducing the lane count from 3 to 2. That same bicycle can be doing its 12 kph on a side street in peace and calm while allowing the cages to do their 65 kph or whatever they wish and all can coexist in peace.
Actually, I agree with you. If there's a non-traveled side road and a main artery, I'm going to take the side road darn near 100% of the time.

While I'm about riding assertively, I'm NOT condoning riding stupidly.

Looks like we've run out of argument.

Oh no. There's LOTS more argument available!

I got to thinking about the yahoos you're talking about. While I don't agree with what they're doing, I'm not going to go out and 'take my frustrations out on them.' Its really no different than someone limping a flat tire along with their 4-ways on.

As much as I don't like parades of Hardleys puttering along below the speed limit, I don't do stupid things to them either. Its ever so tempting sometimes, but I stop and think about it 'what would *I* like to have happen here' and that usually stops things in their tracks.

Live and let live.

Guilty as charged

edited to add: 2 idiots on the road in 3:46 of riding. One passing into oncoming traffic and one passing on the crest of a hill. Wonder if its going to take an accident for people to 'get it.' The other 99% of people going around me? No problems whatsoever.
