@bill: “By the time a person gets strong enough to pedal a bicycle 20 mph they have generally gotten clued-in to good cycling practices.”
We’re going to have to agree to disagree there. The least friendly, most dangerous riding (typically high speeds and dangerous passing in congested areas) I’ve encountered has been by experienced riders riding expensive road bikes who have places to be and Strava ladders to climb, dontcha know. These folks will glare and swear at other riders for any perceived slight, and get hyper competitive with electric bike riders that they perceive to be “cheaters”. I’ve seriously seen people get in road rage like fits, and it’s 100% of the time road bike riders. Every. Single. Time.
