Q: making a left turn on a yield intersection???
If you follow my story in the last few weeks, you will find out that I have a list of questions from buying a bike to how to ride a bike. It is a great pleasure to find this bike forum, and I am very thankful to everyone who had read and contributed to my questions.
I was very happy yesterday because I can finally get more fluent with my Speedplay pedal, and I was able to wear my bike shoes and ride for about 4 miles. I am working on increasing the distance everyday. I canít believe how many muscle groups are required in riding bike; my arms, shoulders, and upper back are sore. It is a great exercise.
I have a question that might sound simple to a lot of bike rider, but I found it quite challenging. I wondered how to make a left turn on a yield intersection. It is easier if there is a left turn light at the intersection, but there are intersections that require yielding. Should I take the cross walk? The yielding intersection around my house is a one lane street, so when the left turn car make a left turn on the opposite direction, the car behind will speed up when the car in front made a left turn(inpatient drivers). I am afraid that it might cause accident if I am riding a bike making a left turn at that kind of situation. What would you do? And what is the correct way to make a left turn on a yield? Thanks
