Every cyclist who hasn't been hit is going to be hit by a car eventually from what I can tell (or a bus).
This is a two lane, heavily trafficked tourist road. But damn, it sure is beautiful, isn't it? It looks like it could be in Europe to me.
I toast you, my cyclist friends, now get out of my way, I need to move my car so I can go get a burger and a beer.
