If cyclists are car drivers pet hate, adding cycle lanes, lines us up for even more abuse as they now think that if one exists we should use it primery
Even if its blocked, worse surface than the adjacent road and of course running the gauntlet with other path users can be far worse.
I tend to place myself in a primery position when I wish to manouver on the road as I know that its safer than shrinking into the gutter.
I cant be that wrong as have had no horns from cars this year and cant remember the last time either, after 45 years on cycling it must work, most might find my actions frightning but you have to do it that way.
