.......on the way home from work, heading back from the beach.
I was just past the draw-bridge and heading down at a good clip, about 300 feet after the road became flat again, I was buzzed by a shiny new black corvette. I failed my bird test and gave him the double birdies.
about 500 feet ahead, he pulls over, gets out of the car and flags me over.
I had my cell phone open and already had 911 dialed when I noticed that he was a police officer... at this point the conversation goes like this:
Officer (yelling): You need to be in the bike lane. If you were in the bike lane you wouldnt have to do this " gives me both birdies right back at me in my face"..
Officer: You need to be in the bike lane where you belong !
Officer: You need to be 18 inches from the side of the road.
Me: I did not see any bike lane signs posted anywhere, or indicated on the side of the road.
Officer: This is a bike lane, points at the 24 inch space between the right side fog line and the dirt.
He gets in his car and I pass him on the left while he is parked in the " bike lane " .
I get into the " bike lane " and let him pass me.
This unmarked bike lane ends about 1000 meters after this location... so then I got right back into the road (about 3 feet in) where I normally ride on this road and continue on my way....
