I explained that College Avenue was too narrow to share and that diagonally parked cars constituted a hazard for bicyclists so I needed to stay at least six feet away from them, hence in the middle of the lane. I also mentioned that his shouting at me constituted harassment and that I was going to report the license number of the car to the Colorado State Patrol. The driver pleaded with me not to “put this on his license.” I explained that since he was the driver he was responsible for the behavior of his passengers. In reality you can shout anything you want at a bicyclist in Colorado as long as you don’t throw anything. But I made my point.
