Riding Lexington Street, Waltham, July 4, 2015

It should be noted that bike lanes have been installed on much of the stretch of Lexington Street shown in the videos. Videos showing the new conditions are in preparation.

Two videos, for now:

A demonstration of lane control in a slow, uphill bicycle ride on a suburban speedway, with light, fast traffic. How controlling the right-hand lane on a multi-lane street makes for safe overtaking by motorists. How traffic law permits lane control. How most though not all motorists respect bicyclists’ rights but even the others overtake safely when the bicyclist controls his or her space.

Another video of a downhill ride on the same street, later the same day, demonstrating lane control technique and with one incident of harassment by a motorist.
