A Picture is Worth...

I had a lot of thoughts about this incident but I decided to let the pictures tell the story for the most part.

I know it wasn't the most terrible incident and the cop didn't buzz me, but if he can't even wait to pass safely on a 25mph parkway what does that tell you about his driving style?
p.s. My wife and I were riding the tandem that's why I was a little further out into the lane while passing the parked car. That tandem maneuvers like a school bus.
p.p.s. The cop was from Greendale

It's hard to judge with the wide angle lens, but it looks like you were still within the door zone of the parked car.

I probably would have merged more left, sooner, to get around the parked car.

Love reading your blog. Be safe. My commute is 80 percent bike paths. Don't miss the road one bit. I wanted to ask about your video setup: was it expensive? What do you recommend for someone who wants to make bike videos of some of his rides?
