I was coming down the 23 from Mulholland towards Westlake this afternoon. I was on the flat part at the bottom where there is virtually no shoulder. I wasn't going fast, just a moderate pace and staying as close as I could to the edge, as I know cars needed to get by.
I heard a car behind me and was waiting for them to pass, there were plenty of opportunities, not a lot of traffic going the other way. To pass safely would have required them to cross the double yellow line by a foot or two. I'm guessing they didn't want to do this. Then they honked, not a lay it on type of honk, the nice kind. But I'm thinking what? What do you want me to do? Get off the road? That's really the only option. I waved for them to pass, they didn't. I looked over my shoulder and there was about 3 cars behind them. Oh geez.
We ended up hitting a faster section and I just decided "whatever", guess they're not going to pass and there's nothing I can do about it. They didn't end up passing until the intersection at the bottom where I finally pulled over. I feel like I pissed some people off, and I didn't really do anything. And is this the kind of thing that makes those drivers purposely buzz another rider down the road?
Was I in the wrong to just keep riding when I knew there was a line of cars wanting to get by?
