Micro-blog No. 7 - Drivers

Why do so many drivers seem to drift to the right just after passing a cyclist? I used to think it was either an act of aggression or at least passive-aggression, but after seeing it so many times, I'm not sure any more. I try to give cyclists room when I pass them, but I'm pretty sure I don't drift too far to the right when I get past them. Of course, with my political leanings, I am very careful to never end up too far to the right.

  1. As cyclists know, you tend to steer where you're looking. Maybe they're looking back to check that they've successfully passed us and we're not pancaked, and this glance to the right leads to an unconscious pull to the right on the steering wheel.

    I like to think most of them care :D.
