Right.  And even though you have the legal right to take the lane in such a situation, it's still a very good idea to communicate unambiguously to motorists that you are doing so.  So when you take the lane, take it like you mean it and go right out in the middle of the lane.

My habits have changed of late and I no longer think that it’s ‘courteous’ to try to move to the right so people can pass you. I used to stay to the right, have someone come really close to me and THEN decide that I’m taking the whole lane. Now I just take the lane.

 

The bottom line is that if you don’t feel that it’s safe sharing the lane then you need to tell motorists it’s not safe to share the lane. You do that by taking the lane.

I wait for a gap in traffic, signal with my left arm, and move to the center of the right lane. When there is no bike lane, taking the entire lane is the only safe option. If a car does come up behind me, it will either have to wait ten seconds while I go under the underpass or it can move to the other lane.

Agree with everything that has been said so far. I'll just add that this is one of many situations where staying as far to the right as possible Is not the same as staying as far to the right as practicable  (which is what the law says). 
Sharrows and "Share the Road" signs are great — and this section certainly needs to be better signed — but they have no impact on how you should ride that section of the road. Take the lane when you need to, the signage is just there to remind drivers.

Re: Help with tricky traffic situation

Absolutely - this is a classic example of a situation where you should ("must", even, I would argue) take the lane.  There is not enough room to share the lane with a car/truck/van.  Wait for an opening, but when it comes, get out there, be completely unambiguous, and assert your rights.  Attempting to share the lane is an accident waiting to happen.

My approach is to "take the lane," as they say.

I generally turn this into a mini sprint as to minimize the time I'm mixed up with traffic, as well as to minimize the speed differential. Taking the lane in this area (as well as any other area where it is not possible/safe for both a bike and car to fit safely) is within our rights and is also the safer option in my opinion. The idea is that when it's not safe for a car to squeeze past, just remove the temptation for a driver to attempt to do so. The unfortunate practical side of this is that not all drivers are aware of this, and may be vocal about their objections.

Re: AB-122 Vehicles: required stops: bicycles

Michael Graff
 

I think there's a drafting error in the bill. Here's the bill text:

22450.
 (a) The driver of any vehicle vehicle, except a bicycle or electric bicycle, approaching a stop sign at the entrance to, or within, an intersection shall stop at a limit line, if marked, otherwise before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection.
If there is no limit line or crosswalk, the driver shall stop at the entrance to the intersecting roadway.
(b) The driver of a vehicle approaching a stop sign at a railroad grade crossing shall stop at a limit line, if marked, otherwise before crossing the first track or entrance to the railroad grade crossing.
(c) A person riding a bicycle, including an electric bicycle, approaching a stop sign at the entrance to, or within, an intersection shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicles that have stopped at the entrance of the intersection, have entered the intersection, or that are approaching on the intersecting highway close enough to constitute an immediate hazard, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to those vehicles until reasonably safe to proceed.

(c)

(d) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a local authority may adopt rules and regulations by ordinance or resolution providing for the placement of a stop sign at any location on a highway under its jurisdiction where the stop sign would enhance traffic safety.
I think the new section 22450(c) is a problem. As written, a cyclist at a 4-way stop would have to yield to ALL cross traffic. 

I think the fix is simple. Just remove the new 22450(c). All we need is this:

22450.
 (a) The driver of any vehicle vehicle, except a bicycle or electric bicycle, approaching a stop sign [...]

Yielding is already covered in CHAPTER 4. Right-of-Way [21800 - 21809] so it's not needed in 22450. 

Does this sound right?

The below was recently included in the Silicon Valley Bike Exchange newsletter. I wasn't aware of it previously. Thought it might be of interest...

Bicycle-Related Legislation in California


Assembly Bill 122 will soon be read by the Transportation Committee in the California State Assembly. The bill will legalize the Safety Stop for bicyclists, allowing cyclists moving at a slow speed to treat certain stop signs as a yield in some situations. Supporters of the bill should send letters of support directly to the Chair of the Committee on Transportation, Assemblymember Laura Friedman.

The Idaho stop might be coming to California!  That would be awesome.

Re: Are group rides starting again in April?

Hi Barry,

Thanks for the clarification.

Best regards,

Hi Satish,

The FFBC board has not yet reopened the calendar for rides.  This is a topic that the board discusses every meeting and, coincidentally, there is a board meeting followed by a club meeting this evening (see David's prior post).  

To make things easier for me (as ride coordinator) once we do reopen, I have kept all the recurring rides on the calendar and have deleted them a couple of weeks ahead of time.  One thing you can count on for sure is that most if not all the rides posted on the April calendar will not occur, and any rides initially posted once we do reopen will be in a restricted form similar to last fall.

Hope this clarifies things.

Hi,
  I see group rides listed in the online ride calendar starting in April. Is that true or just wishful thinking on my part?
Thanks,
Satish
