Another tactic was crowding. Where there was a wide lane on the road for safe cycling out of the motorized lane, traffic patterns were normal., However, most every time the side lane disappeared, two lanes of traffic appeared crowding me and making cycling less safe. If that had happened only once or a few times, OK then, just happenstance, but this happened consistently 50 times, a hundred times, unquestionably organized, timed, coordinated events. There is a lot more to this than stated here, but this should give you an idea of tactics used by these criminal bastards. Noise attacks and crowding became extremely disturbing after a while, and provoking.
Also, while in a side lane traffic was usual and not contrived as far as was discernible. But sometimes I came across some obstruction in the side lane such as a two-by-four laid across the lane or a branch of a tree where there were no trees. These obstruction had to be gone around by swerving out into the main roadway. Again, almost every time I came to one of these obstructions, a car or truck would come from the rear and pass me exactly, and I mean exactly at the time I started to swerve. Often, two cars and or trucks would come abreast of each other and me at exactly the time I started to swerve. This happened many many many times. There is no possible way it was only coincidence. This happened many times even on back roads where traffic was extremely light. I mean, no traffic for 15 minutes at a time or sometimes longer, but every time I crossed a crack going onto a bridge, came to a stretch of road where there was no side lane, or came to an obstruction the exact same traffic patterns appeared to cause discomfort and disruption and crowding.
It was all illegal as hell. There is absolutely no possible way these traffic patterns were random. They were all coordinated, timed, organized, and criminal. How about that?
