I’m being a gutter bunny and filtering to the right of traffic on Mission Street in Santa Cruz, California. It’s generally a bad idea to ride to the right of moving traffic, and you should never pass trucks on the right.
I mitigate the risk somewhat by slowing behind vehicles when crossing intersections, but I still invite “right hook” collisions as I cross several driveways. Another risk: there are plenty of people coming the other direction waiting to make a left turn. They might try to shoot across a gap without seeing the cyclist (me) coming into the gap at the same time.
Beside the two biggies of the left cross and right hook, what are some other possible risks in passing on the right like this?
