Sharing the road goes both ways, motherfuckers!
If you are riding on my country road and have six cars backed up behind you, I fully expect your Lance Armstrong wannabe ass to pull over into the first available turnout or drive to let the cars & trucks pass. Anything less is pure assholery.
You have to remember that you are acting in the capacity of an ambassador of all bicyclists and should conduct yourself accordingly.
Do not be surprised when you are showered with insults (or liquids) as the drivers you've pissed off pass you as close as possible at their first opportunity to pass.
Whew! I feel much better with my now empty spleen.
