    I thought it was pretty cool, especially liked the part where he reached, and technically exceeded, the speed limit. Props dude.

    Nice to see cops looking out for cyclists. Good post.
    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Unless it does kill you, in which case, you wouldn't be here to dispute the point.

    Devils advocate here.

    That guy should not have been riding right down the middle of the lane. Get the fawk over and let traffic get by. That car might not have been tailgating if he had room to get by.
    It is total ******** to ride down the middle of a lane of traffic. It's stuff like that that makes drivers hate cyclists.

    I kinda see your point and personally I ride closer to the right but there's just nowhere for him to ride near the shoulder and also have cars pass safely so I get what he's doing. Also depending on local laws, cyclist are often allowed full use of the entire lane.

    In any case, he's going as fast as the cars.

    No. it's not - get a clue man
    there is nowhere to ride SAFELY to the right - See pic (the dark areas along the blue areas indicate normal traffic lane)


    Riding to the right in this case invites clipping. (you should know this)

    It is downright mind blowing how many mouth breathing idiots in the comments tell him he should be riding on the sidewalk.

    So then he's riding a foot from the curb @ 30 mph with traffic (exceeding the speed limit) squeezing by him a foot to his left, completely unsafe for the cyclist but I suppose it might save the tailgater a second or two on their commute.

    People who don't ride the roads regularly fail to understand that it's not a dick move at all but merely a human being trying to stay alive. It's stuff like this that makes cyclists hate drivers, yet most restrain from kicking in @ssholes fenders who threaten their lives just to make a point and instead only smile and wave.

    I'm not a roadie, but don't see how anyone would think the cyclist is in the wrong here. The road has two lanes in that direction and dude is going the limit. No different than passing a motorcycle at that point. Passing slower traffic in that situation happens all day; every day. Not a big deal. Driver is an incompetent DB that shouldn't have a license.

    Obviously bicyclists have rights to the road just as any other legal traffic. I ride a bunch of road miles. Having been hit by an inattentive driver, claiming that right from a hospital bed (or a wheelchair?) may not serve you particularly well, long term.

    In this case, the cyclist was 100% in the right - going at or very close to the posted speed limit and "taking the lane" is fine. My club does this on a few stretches of road. But.. two things:
    1. Even when you're able to maintain the posted MPH, ya gotta remember NO ONE else will be doing anything less than 10 over. So, there's a big risk with taking the lane - especially when riding solo (less visible) as opposed to a larger group.
    2. Taking the lane at 17 MPH in a 35 is a douchey move (not this video) regardless of the law. Yes, we have the "right" to road equal to the cars. But, come on... how would you react to a car going 15, 18, 22 MPH in a 35 zone?

    Again, this guy gets all the props - holding 30 MPH in a 30 zone, and watching the jackass get popped. Great day on the bike.
    Mountain bikers who don't road ride are usually slow.
    Roadies who don't mountain bike are usually d***s.

    Did anyone catch the drivers first words... "This bicycle was in front of me..."

    I doubt if he continued with... but he wasn't breaking the speed limit by as much as I usually do and wouldn't move over into the gutter so I had to tailgate him.

    I'm sure the officer ripped him a new one.
