I had another reminder of just bicycle facilities are rubbish last week and I wasn't even using one! I was cycling along a road where you have to ride out from the edge of because of the appalling road surface. This car - a little hatchback type thing - started to overtake me with a few inches to spare. Neither of us were travelling at any speed so I didn't feel in any immediate danger but it did make me think "Whooah!" My first thought was to leave it but the car pulled up to turn right at the end of the road and the passenger window was down so I thought I could at least point out that they should give a little more space when overtaking. The mood was definitely not ranty and the driver initially mumbled a bit of an apology to me. His passenger, however, came out with a classic comment that left me gobsmacked: "Well, bike lanes are only narrow, so you don't need that much space!"
