Below is a link to a video I made riding home yesterday early evening. It was an uneventful ride with moderate level of traffic.
There are a few areas of interest:
-The merge left after the intersection - I was looking back and signaling left with arm. I should have taken the opportunity to get in front of the green jeep (0:50), but hesitated. I was firmly signaling to the dark grey pickup (1:03), but instead of slowing they speed up and I popped in behind them. Worked out fine.
-Then a bit later I get passed by a car who didn't fully go into left lane (1:36). Didn't bother me, but just showing it happens. Note I was a bit further right than I should have been, but also note I had moved right so as not to go over the manhole cover. So my slight change in position toward the right perhaps encouraged this type of pass.
As to my lane position, the camera is aligned so the bottom center of the frame is the track I am riding on, generally a bit right of center in the lane.
Enjoy if you have the bandwidth/time. Its a 6.7MB file, right click and 'Save Target As..." to your hardrive, then open it to view (if you click on link directly it doesn't play) Also you may want to turn off volume as its just abrasive vibration/wind noise.
