sticky wicket on the way home tonight. sharing wide outside lanes with motorists and steadyish commuter traffic home, got passed and was in the 'hook' position for a lot of time. Running high vis and being fairly well out into the wide lane helped keep the actual neglectful hooks to nil, but at the same time, big vc conflict:
Lane wide enough to share safely. (14 foot outside lane or very wide curb lane with or w/o delineated parking) steady traffic. lots of driveway and intersections. chatter is high, traffic is clipping along.
Where do YOU ride to prevent right hooks in wide lanes? my assertion is you cannot. if you ride too far left, motorists pass irritated on YOUR right, a violation of the rules of the road. if you ride too far right, you violate being to the right of traffic that may turn right.
Where do YOU ride?
