I was just goofing around with my camera on my commute home, perhaps trying to get a different angle with my handlebars and the setting sun or something, when this guy on a road bike blew past me like I was standing still: whooooosh. Anyway this photo reminded me about the question of riding the line, which I seem to notice more of lately. Forgetting that he happened to be passing me at this instant and needed to go out there so he's not a very good example, it seems like I've noticed more cyclists riding in areas with bike lanes who choose to ride on or very near the line, right about where I happened to take this photograph. One rider (who also blew past me) this morning was riding right down the middle of it. Is it some training technique? Some kind of obsessive-compulsive game (I'm in!)? A statement: "no bike lane can hold me!" For safety, or technique? Imaginary pace line practice is a good guess. Again, I don't mean just while passing one bicycle commuter traveling at an average speed, I mean the whole way. White line fever. This weekend, the weather looks fine. Think I'll go for a ride, or two. Perhaps on the line. Perhaps not.
