To Begin Where I Am

I feel like I want to murder someone. And also I want soft pretzels.

“One of the most important resources that a garden makes available for use, is the gardener’s own body. A garden gives the body the dignity of working in its own support. It is a way of rejoining the human race.”

Mountain bikers?

So, I live near (and work on) a mountain. Said mountain is favored by local cyclists as a place to train. Because mountain roads are … mountain roady, I often find myself behind one of these bikers on my morning commute (at least, in nice weather), driving at about 5 mph waiting for a straight stretch so I know that I can safely pass. 

Now, when this happens, cars tend to get backed up behind me, and there’s a lot of honking and swerving and occasional yelling. I’m guessing they just want me to go ahead and pass already, but it doesn’t seem safe. I know my car is compact, but there’s really not room for me to blitz by the cyclist in the one lane, and I don’t want to pull into the middle of the road in the event that a speeding car comes around a curve in the road in the opposite lane. 

I feel like I’m missing some kind of road etiquette here, though, because I inevitably seem to piss people off. Or maybe they’re mad at the cyclist? I don’t know. Does anyone who actually cycles have any insight for me? Are the other drivers being jerks, or do I drive like a granny, or what?

My friend Suzanna grows shiitake mushrooms. Getting the first basket of these is one of my favorite parts of spring.
