"Drive near the curb in the same direction as traffic"

Driving near the curb can be dangerous. Maryland has a far to the right rule. But! If the lane is not wide enough to accommodate both a bike and a car with three feet in between, the cyclist may ride in the center of the lane. The motorist must slow to follow and pass when safe. Briefly crossing the double line is permitted. This is similar to what a motorist would do when overtaking a slow tractor, a bus, or a buggy. If you feel safest far to the right, leave at least a foot to the left of the curb pan ... that's about two feet from the curb. There is a lot of debris and trash the closer you get to the edge, not to mention storm grates and broken pavement. And make yourself as visible as possible. Invest in a bright flashing light.

And for heaven's sake WEAR YOUR HELMET. Report
I don't ride bikes, but I do ride a stationary bike and I think those who do should obey all the rules of the road like vehicle drivers. Report
I would never consider biking anywhere because as a driver I consider them a hazard on the road as they don't always observe the rules. I know everybody's not that way, but I find I have to go out of my lane to go around them safely usually and heard a story about a woman I know whose daughter plowed into a group of bicyclists at 7:30 in the morning, injuring one severely. She had been partying the night before. Probably still hung over. Scary stuff. Report
