Large organized ride on Sunday. One terrific, long downhill: very good road, decent shoulder, great sightlines, double yellow the entire way. Two years ago we had three singles drafting us at 50+ Rank the actors from dumb to dumbest.
Actor 1: A single bike going perhaps 30mph about 3 ft. out in the lane. Two friends (?) front and back on the fog line.
Actor 2: Car following the three single riders for 30 seconds and unwilling to cross (by a few feet) the double yellow line to safely pass. Actor 1 shows no inclination to move over to facilitate a pass by Actor 2.
Actor 3 (OP&Stoker): Riding the brakes behind Actor 2 for 30 seconds. Actor 3 becomes impatient and passes (at 45 mph+) Actors 1 and 2 safely(?). No oncoming traffic in sight. Actor 3 crosses over the double yellow by perhaps 2 feet and easily passes Actors 1 and 2.
I won't editorialize. This may be interesting.
