Constant issue around me in NY. Both motorist and bicyclist push the issue to very bad places. When there is no bike lane and you choose to ride 2 or 3 wide, there aren't many New Yorkers who are going to patiently wait for an opportunity to pass you. IMHO when you do that (ride multiple wide) you are seeking a fight or to be hit.

I don't think they should allow more than one abreast, after all cars aren't permitted to drive like that.

Yes, except that all of the lichen kissers have made SURE that ALL of the trails (EVEN the fire roads!) in the areas I've lived were PERMANENTLY closed to riders, DESPITE the fact that we did regular, intensive trail maintenance, and they did NONE at all! mad

Man that sucks....and makes no sense! Sounds like you need a bigger mountain biking organization where you live!

Shaking my head. I would have been on top of that dude in the 2nd video.

I only ride trails. Road's just too dangerous. I'm scared in my 5000#+ truck with these drivers.

Those examples show just the opposite: Motorcyclists are a menace to bicyclists, not the other way around. The motorcycle rider was clearly at fault in every one of those videos.

I'm not a teacher, BUT... WOW. Three mistakes on that ignorant sign and, no one here (so far), or even the TV reporter or his news editor could point out the third atrocity on that neanderthal's phrase? I bet that jewel took several hours to draft, paint and hang up... but saved plenty by not having to check grammar or spelling.

That sign is a testament that our education system is an epic fail.

I didn't watch all three videos, as I don't have the time at the moment. This video is a pathetic display of Motorcycle riding.

I am a life-long Motorcyclist, (since the age of 6 anyway) and can tell you that Motorcyclist has virtually no riding ability. He is not going fast, certainly not anywhere near the limits of the tires or the bike (SV650). He is so unskilled that he panics and target fixates on the bicyclist, even at the low speed he was riding.

This unskilled Motorcyclist has no business riding on the public roads. He is a hazard to himself, and more importantly, others.

you probably missed him hitting his foot on the ground then going wide because he stood it up too much?

Nope. I saw and heard it. Again, he is an unskilled rider that doesn't understand proper foot placement on the pegs when a negotiating a mild curve in the road. Due to his incompetence he is a danger to others, and himself.

This guy who posted this sign shows a lack of restraint and good judgement. From here on out, if he were to EVER hit a cyclist and kill them, he could potentially be charged with premeditated murder. There are dozens of cases where people posted online or texted what they would do in a given situation. The situation arose, the written verbiage was subpenaed and used against them in court resulting in extended prison stays. Anything one texts or posts online can be used against them even long after that individual forgot about it or thought it was deleted.
The fact that this individual has this sign on his property pretty much makes him screwed for the rest of his life if he were to hit a cyclist.

2 abreast is legal in Texas but I don't know about other locations.

Texas Transportation Code, Chapter 551 "OPERATION OF BICYCLES, MOPEDS, AND PLAY VEHICLES"
http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/docs/tn/htm/tn.551.htm

That being said, my group always goes single file if cars are coming up behind us so we can let them pass more easily.

Generally it takes just a few bicyclists to poison a lot of driver's opinions of them.

I share the road when driving; Often that concept is not reciprocated by the riders.

That is so true, and I despise the bad apples that cause so much trouble for all us cyclists. If everyone would just follow the rules of the road things would go so much better overall.

Sometimes I even pull off the road if I see there's a couple of cars waiting, better to let them go by and on their way than to say what I am doing is more important than what they are doing. I wish more cyclists would do that.
