Hmm, where'd that number come from?
Oh, Pete is an Illuminatus too... member of the secret order of river riding bicyclists.The formula for calculating the figure takes into account the average number of steel gates, pigeons, pedestrians, dog walkers, roller skaters, mama chari riders, toilet stops, drink searching diversions, puncture changes, wind direction, the slight elevation going up stream versus the added speed on the slight decent on the return.
Once on the way to the Izu peninsula I ended up on the expressway; there wasn`t any green sign to indicate entering the expressway. Once discovered, the cops escorted me to route 1.One thing: the bypasses on 246 are marked with "No Bikes" signs. I generally ignore these and time trial over the bybasses, as heeding the signs is a detour into red-light hell. Today, I was tut-tutted by a woman on a scooter as I blew past her on the overpass. "Bicycles aren't allowed here!" she cawed, her scooter doing about 30kph to my 45kph. I responded by doing my best Fabian Cancellara impersonation and kicking Black Thunder into high gear.
My question is, do you guys ignore those signs, play it case by case, or obey them? Have any of you been yelled at while riding on a bypass, or been stopped by the fuzz?

I agree with your custom of 1/3 stance and turn. I also think it might be work wonderfully well that even checking your right shoulder would tell vehicle drivers your intention of moving bit right ward to evade obstacles or your feeling of taking good care of you passing through. Let's have nice rides!Deej,
Been riding this style for years now and I've had no issues with it, once in a while I get someone honk thier horn but I normal turn, smile, wave then once the road is safe I pull in for them to get pass with another wave. It seems to work wonders.
Route 246 is pretty good as I catch a lot of regular drivers that recognise me and will happily wait for me to wave them through..... (Maybe its just the rear view they appreciate)
