Notes: Truth is, cyclists are allowed on the road. Period. But many drivers feel cyclists absolutely must be on the bicycle pathway, if it is there. I have a love/hate relationship with the cycling paths. Some are wide and clear and smooth, and I can ride there to my heart’s content. But there are also many that are narrow, run along the front of houses, like a sidewalk, have ripples, ridge and holes created b y tree roots that have spread under the asphalt, and you share the space w pedestrians. I avoid these and ride one the road, instead. And, guaranteed, I will have drivers come by, tooting their horns and, after passing, gesturing that I am to get off the road. There more determined will roll down their windows and shout at me. If the roadways the cars use were in the same condition, cars would be brought to a standstill. Cyclists are supposed to accept inferior conditions, no matter what. .. And the fight for existence, acceptance, continues.
