Riding and Costco

Now that I'm getting back into riding (hopefully weekly), I'm finding that these rides are like going to Costco. It's a whole lot of fun to do, but there's way too many people on the weekends! Went for a quickie yesterday (quickies are always good, on anyday ) and on four different occasions, there was a car doing like 20 mph under the limit holding up a line of cars. No attempts to move over, let alone even look in the mirror. I'm not a big advacate of crossing the dbl striper, but, !

Sometimes they give you no choice but to ride down the line in between them...

Wasn't it George Carlin who said idiots are those driving slower than you, and maniacs are those driving faster than you. On weekends, I like to do my riding in the canyons before 11am. After that the idiots come out.

I won't pass between two way traffic, but will eventually make my way around.
