    if no shoulder then OWN THE ROAD!

    Yes they say own the lane not ride on the imaginary shoulder when there is no shoulder or bike lane. This forces the motor vehicle drivers to respect your space and the space you need to ride safely.

    BUTTT... IT DOES NOT MEAN TO RIDE ON THE CENTER YELLOW LINE ON NARROW WINDING COUNTRY LANE AT ANY SPEED. For heaven sake, there are lunatic tea baggers, pkups with BIG AMERICAN FLAG and with BIG CONFEDERATE FLAG flying in the bed. I've seen one recently with BIG AMERICAN FLAG and a CRUSADER FLAG (as in European knights of the middle ages battling Turks and killing Jews etc.)

    THEY NO LIKE BICYCLISTS. And that's putting it mildly.

    If you need to own the lane, ride in the center of the lane on 2 lane country road. Not on the yellow median.

    I've always been told 3 feet to the left of the white line if no shoulder. It works.
    So long as the wheels are still turning, life is good.
