Bike Pic March 6, Pay Attention To Cyclists and Cars, Whats Wrong With This Photo?

With the warm weather becoming more frequent as the days become longer, make sure either when driving your bike or car to pay attention and be alert. In this ‘pic of the day’ whats wrong with the subjects in this image?

The group of cyclists are all wearing helmets and some are properly signaling for a left-hand turn that they are all preparing to make. The problem is the majority of the cyclists are over on the right shoulder? They are not following, two-a-breast, the lead biker who is over to the far left preparing to make a safe turn – using good driving practice procedures. If you were driving a car and approached this group of bicyclist from behind would you be a little confused to their intentions?

Please, Share the Road, drive your bike as you would your car and enjoy the nice weather!
