Anyway, I am also on the Caravaners Forum where I chanced across a relevant thread. It started with a driver having an issue with cyclists on a major road - you can read the story he presented in the OP of the thread at http://caravanersforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=72848&p=1067196&hilit=safe+passing+bicycle#p1067196.
An understanding of the OP's rationale can be gleaned from the following:
I fully respect people’s right to high adventure and applaud things like fundraising.
Sounds balanced. And THEN comes the "BUT"
BUT not if it destroys my life with the guilt of killing someone – both the cyclists and potentially other motorists in taking evasive action.
For goodness sake !! – these roads can barely fit a caravan or road train between side line and centre line. There’s no room for anything else on the road in squeeze situations.
I suggest that people read at the very least the first page. Reading the responses there are a lot of these drivers that are making very much the points that cyclists have been making without success. I am surprised at the number of caravan drivers who are not expressing the gross entitlement that other motorist show, rather suggesting that they may be the problem if they do not show patience or make silly choices.
Now takeit from this caravan owner, if ANYONE is truly put out by having to slow down to a crawl before getting around a cyclist pinch point it is those towing caravans. They take a long LONG time to get back up to a decent passing speed and they usually have a less-than-perfect view of trailing traffic that is likely to pull out on THEM as they slow down.
Yet so many respondents are calling out those that do not understand, including questioning some of the OP's thinking
Perhaps it's the age demographic. Maybe people of the grey nomad age recall that bikes used to be ridden on regional roads a lot and without the tribalism that infest both cyclists and anti-cyclists.
So take heart guys, it's not just cyclists that understand your needs and actions.
