So that's a third lane

Third-laning in Bermuda, to me, refers to situations such as rush hour on East Broadway or the Paget traffic lights where traffic is pretty much at a standstill and bike riders overtake several cars at a time while traffic in the other lane may or may not be flowing.

However, after seeing the rider of O067 (it's a rental bike) fly down the center stripe while traffic was free-flowing in both directions, I'm going to have to dismiss the earlier definition. It's amazing that he went through without getting clipped by a car or truck...

What is it that being on a bike makes one think that they are invincible?

I think it's more of a feeling of security that all the other drivers will try desperately to avoid you. Very cocky and very stupid.

Most drivers don't want to get involved in collisions, but these bike riders are pushing it and some driver's going to say screw it I'm not risking an even greater incident so good luck with that helmet, young'un...
