Worst thing that ever happened to me was a unprovoked attempt to force me off the road by some jerk who apparently disliked cyclists.. I never ride two abreast on any road where there is any degree of traffic. I was in a well marked bike lane with sufficient shoulders. The opinion that it was provoked is not mine, but those who were riding with me from behind.. Some cager was gawking at a string of cyclists not paying attention to the road . He was the center of their attention , because earlier he made comments to those at the end of the line of cyclists... .. Luckily, it was near miss, even if I could feel the heat of his exhaust pipe on my leg.
