i don't really measure so I'm thinking I might be about 4 feet from side of a door, depends sometimes on what's ahead as I may want to take a wider line anyway if there's a significantly wider vehicle or bend that I'd like to open up to see so i might well be near the centre line.
Haven't had a rider undertake me though had a few squeezing on the inside at lights when you're already there. A few honks of the horn and overtly aggressive engine revving is fairly frequent when passing parked vehicles or just generally riding.
One gave me a mouthful recently and then when I carried on he shot ahead then reversed back in an agressive manner to give it some more, my crime, overtaking a Luton box van! I just gave him a few verbals back and went on my way. Unlucky for him he lived down the bottom of my street (I didn't know it until that moment) so as I pulled in at top of the street I saw his car parking up ... wasn't so mouthy when I approached him and his missus. He giving it 'middle of the road', 'I've got it on my camera', great I said, let's call the police and review your aggressive driving and threatening behaviour shall we
Amazing how these people have the time to slow down, stop, reverse back and then give you grief over 'holding them up'
divvy cyclists are a pain and can be dangerous for sure, but nowhere near as much a concern as motorists, not even close.
