I"m sure there is a correct protocol for road manners for bikers and perhaps this should be posted on the safty group or road cycling...Maybe I shoud just go read the threads on that group. But anyways, I had to make a trip from Northest Al over into Northwest Ga today hauling a dresser. It was a gorgious day and I was wishing I was biking like the several groups I met and passed. Most groups were from 2 to 5 with a couple of solo bikers. I got behind one group of 3 on a narrow country road and they were riding 3 abreast. I can see they probably did not want cars passing them unless it was clear in the far lane. I had to wait for one car to get by in the oncomening lane befor I could go around. I was in no hurry so it was no big deal. However, when I ride with the guy I normally ride with we line up single file when we see a car coming up from behind. It seems like the courtious thing to do. Is this wrong? Should we stay abreast and make the car from behind have a clear lane before passing. I can imagine some folks would get angry following bikers and perhaps this (staying wide) could be more dangerous than lining up. Just courious and also want to be safe myself. Thoughts.
