I have wondered to myself time and again why bicyclists don't ride against traffic in the same manner pedestrians are encouraged to walk against traffic. It is unnerving to be on some of the narrow streets and byways of Idaho on a bicycle riding with traffic. You don't know what is behind you and how close they are coming at you when riding a bicycle. I don't know how to get this law changed, but we have had far too many accidents that could have been avoided if bicycle riders were riding their bikes facing oncoming traffic.
