Heeding the suggestion of many to take the lane, I did several times, but each time a car would come up from behind almost swiping me and squeeze past to get in front of me, sometimes with a honk, as if saying: "Get away! You don't belong here!" It was pretty dangerous. If I were riding on the side as far away from the cars as possible, the cars would not bother me. So to those for taking the lane, haven't you had the same experience and how do you deal with it?
