    You need to ride farther left...out of the debris and away from the bushes. The insane drivers have these things called steering wheels and brakes...which the debris and the bushes, don't.

    Yes, but stay center enough to be safe...you don't need to be riding through debris, roadkill, sewer grates etc.

    Your numbers are off. My daddy always taught me that in any given endeavor, there is always 10 percent who just can't get with the program. If you're getting just .1% you are doing great! ;)

    "Should" is subject to the cyclist's perception of what is safe. If the lane is wide enough to share safely, share it, if not, own it. It's not rocket surgery. You, as a driver, don't get to...
