Help with tricky traffic situation
I've had yet another dangerous encounter under the bridge on Mission Blvd between Stevenson traveling to Las Palmas. The location is here: https://goo.gl/maps/7JUqT2xFAeVYVmzU7 For years I've dreaded this section as the bike lane narrows to inches. Today a minivan honked me as I was entering then passed me (also inches away). I was as far right as I could be with a flashing red LED during daylight - I wasn't doing anything odd. The horn scared me and I got quite upset that the driver almost caused an accident.
I'm looking for pointers on how to ride this section. Going the opposite direction I momentarily hop onto the sidewalk as I feel safer (it also has a bike lane that narrows to inches). I might have to do the same for the direction I had an issue with today and go into the mini tunnel. I generally don't do this as I never see an easy/safe entrance as most cars are trying to make a right on Mission from Stevenson and block the sidewalk ramp at the intersection.
Any suggestions are welcome,
