The rumble strip isn't there to keep them from hitting cyclists riding on the gravel shoulder. It is to warn a driver that they are about to drop from the pavement at speed and possibly lose control....

It is a stretch to say that that cyclist was 'in the lane'. They weren't even in the RH tire track. That driver absolutely was attempting a close pass and it went VERY badly on them (and on the...

A lot of things should not happen, and yet they do all the time. Relying on what drivers should and shouldn't do for your safety is just foolishly naive.

Birth year bike

How many of you have a bike from your birth year, or other special occasion?
I would love to pick up a nice path racer type from 1956
