    Stay in your lanes please

    Whenever I am riding my bike somewhere I usually come up on drivers, especially with the weather gets colder in other parts of the country. Driving a ca is an awesome way to see the ciy and something that I would eventually like to get into. Here is my concern, and somewhat anger. Stay in the lane!! You can or will kill somebody. Idk why the majority of drives enjoy risking their lives of others driving on road. Ride behind your the car in front of you, not right beside them. Yes, the majority of bikers will move over a couple feet for safety incase a driver swerves, but not all riders do this, and for drivers, why take the risk??? To me, drivers seem to think, bikes can move for me, but people arent smart enough to look sometimes, so stay in the lane, thats how you kill people. I guess I just dont understand why people risk the lives of others on a bike everyday.

    (P.S. If you live in Tucson, you're not allowed to comment on this thread. Because you have no idea. Many folks in Phoenix rely on their cars to commute, even if it's a half a mile to get to the Circle K. It's becoming so bad the bikers are starting to ride on the sidewalk.)

    All I can say is if I have any trouble on my road ride to south mountain this afternoon I WILL start ramming cars with my road bike. I'm rolling on 700X23's so motorists best give me my space!

    Roads are for road bikes! It's right there in the name.

    I don't want to be considered selfish. I'd be more than happy to give motorists one day a month to use the roads without the fear of hitting a cyclist. It's the least I can do.
