"I disagree that it is ever rude to take the lane. It is always necessary to take the lane because eventually some body will decide that there is enough room to drive past the polite cyclist, putting the cyclist in a tight spot. I ride in the…"
"Gotta take the lane. Maybe find a less congested route, if there is one.
That being said, the news team needs to report who was there 1st. Was the cyclist there 1st and the truck right hooked her or was the truck there 1st and the cyclist…"
