I want to get in the habit of biking long distances in my spare time. But the thing is some 60 mph roads only have a small 3 ft width strip for cyclists. I was doing a short ride to a close city that was only 6-7 miles away, and half the car that passed by me didn't bother to change lanes. They just whizzed past me with 3-4 feet of clearance. While I was on a strip of road that forced me to bike on the right lane, one dumb f*k honked at be before speeding 4 ft past me at 50 mph (this was not really a highway, but was an extension of a highway). I've never ridden on highways, what are some things I should know??
