Fitting in to traffic patterns in other cities
Recently I was on vacation in another city (Honolulu) and the wife and I rented bikes for our stay. It was a lot of fun and a great way to experience the area. In my home town (LA) I'm a religious adherent to VC and brought the same habits with me to Hawaii. One thing I noticed though was that the occasional horn or shout from drivers made me more uncomfortable than it would've at home. When I'm riding around my city I'm comfortable weathering any driver abuse because I have a general "This is my city too and I have a right to use and enjoy it" attitude, but I felt almost guilty when I'm more of a "guest" in another area, I was definitely more likely to make concessions like yielding the lane.
Has anyone else felt this? How do you handle riding outside of your home territory?
