Yeah, thats right, I'm riding up the centre white lane.

Yep, thats me. Rather than 'ride curbside' there I am going up between dozens of cars standing perfectly still.Why, you might ask? And of course you might also wonder, isn't that illegal?a) The curbside is hugged by cars, they'd rather rub a tire on

Yep, thats me. Rather than 'ride curbside' there I am going up between dozens of cars standing perfectly still.

Why, you might ask? And of course you might also wonder, isn't that illegal?

a) The curbside is hugged by cars, they'd rather rub a tire on the curb than rub another car

b) Theres 3x's the space for me to travel (see 'a' above) so it is safer. You might not believe it, bu t from my perspective its perfectly true.

c) After storms and between cleanings there's always a pile of debris on the curbside.

I know, I know. Its 'illegal' and 'dangerous' and it really pisses you guys off having to sit there and watch me zip by. But man, you're going like 5-10 km/h, if that, and I've been riding in the city for close to 20 years, I think I've picked up a few skills in that length of time. So don't stress it. Have another smoke. Drink your coffee, and chill. Its all good.
