Hey no sht. You missed the point, that was clear to me riding home yesterday for a 4mi stretch. Centerish may have been default in my head, but in practice I was to the right (except where I didn't want drivers to pass) If the spring had bounced me back, I'd be right in front of the next car, bouncing back would require a negotiation and confirmation that the following car was slowing to let me back in center.Originally Posted by Helmet Head
Now of course there are other times when traffic is lighter (my AM commute) where I can ride in center of lane nearly the entire way - most drivers merge into adjacent lane long before they get to me. When traffic gets a bit more, then I only move over once in a while to let someone pass.
