Q&A - Riding Motorcycles and Bicycles Side by Side
Recently there have been a couple articles regarding bicycles and motorcycles riding side by side. To the best of my knowledge this is not illegal for the motorbike but when the bicycle does it and encroaches into the traffic lane. Because the bike is unable to maintain, in most cases the same speed as a motor vehicle this makes it a huge hazard but I don’t know or remember if this is illegal. I was always taught that if two that if riding a bicycle with a friend side by side and a vehicle is in the same lane approaching from behind, you should move into single file. Granted, that was way before bike lanes existed. What say you to this?
