This morning started out just loverly. Early on in the commute I get up to a T intersection where I have a stop sign. So I stick out my arm to the left and slowly start to move into the middle of the lane as I am approaching the stop sign. Someone comes up behind me and then start to try to pass me on the left with about 2 car lenght to go before we both have to come to stop. I yell at them to watch out (for the record I am wearing brightyellow and have my super flash on). They end up pulling behind me.
No more than 1 mile up the road I get to an intersection where the 3 ft shoulder I ride in (practially a perfect bike lane) comes to an end. The road lines move the right lane over 3 ft to the right covering where the shoulder used to be to make room for a left turn lane. The light is read and there is a car in front of me slowing down to make a stop. There are only a few car length of distance to where I'd have to come to a complete stop. A car starts to pull up next to me. As they are next to me they start to move over to the right. I yell at them to watch out. The lady then gets out of the car and yells at me that I should have signaled my move to the left. Problem is I was going STRAIGHT, I stayed 2 to 3 feet from the right curb the whole way. It is the car lane that moves to the right. Worst of all she is a member of the local cycling club... Was I wrong. With nearly getting run off the road a few minutes before maybe I was a little more jumpy then normal, but when a car is next to me and starts to move right I am going to get their attention to make sure they don't side swipe me. If the shoulder end I am going straight I shouldn't have to signal anything right?
Thanks for listing,
