[Cyclelicious] New comment on Taking the lane: How it's done.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Taking the lane: How it's done":

that road in laguna is insane. while i am 100% supportive of bicyclists asserting their rights on the road, but that looked rather unnecessary. why not pick a slightly less busy road?

having grown up in orange county, i realize that most roads are huge and fast, but a lot of roads also have a bike lane or at least a shoulder.

vehiclar cycling is one thing, but planting yourself in the midst of SUVs piloted by cell-phone talking drivers going 50mph to prove a point is another. why should you believe, even for a second, that a car behind you is going to see you or give you a wide berth just because you're in the middle of the right lane? people still give me a foot or less when passing me, even when i plant my butt right down the middle of the lane.
