Today I was on my usual ride, which is on a causeway where hundreds of people ride in the morning. Its two lanes in each direction, spd limit 40 mph. On one section there is a bike lane that is about 5-6 ft wide. There are groups of riders spaced out about every 500 meters or so, some groups bigger than others so sometimes they take part of the first lane of traffic.
There was this idiot woman in an SUV driving in the right hand lane, going at least 50mph, and honking at every cyclist she came up to and buzzing them within a foot or two, even though car traffic was almost non-existent and the left lane was completely open and free! I don't get it. Why do cars try to kill us?
