If I'm driving and a bike is in front of me I slow down and share the road. When it is safe for both of us, and eventually it will be, I pass the bicyclist. It slows things down a little, but so what?

THANK YOU for your courtesy and patience!! As a cyclist, I genuinely wish it was not necessary for you to have to slow down (because of me). I wish I was in a bike lane, and you in a comfortable and unobstructed lane.

A couple of times I have seen drivers obey the law and exhibit elementary decency toward properly riding cyclists, only to be road raged on themselves by other motorists! My heart aches when I see that. I wish I could tell the courteous person that it was noticed, appreciated, and heartfelt thanks for doing the right thing.

Making the case for a cycling network really is too easy.

Your comment is warmly reassuring and keeps my faith in humanity going :)
