The debate over sharing the road has reached the Mercury News' Mr. Roadshow column, with a letter about passing a group of bike riders on Canada Road in Woodside. It ran in the March 3 issue.

Here's the question posed by the reader:
"While driving on Canada Road in Woodside, I found myself behind a large pod of 75 to 100 bicyclists taking up the entire lane. I remained behind them until the passing lane came up and then made my cautious move. The cyclists did not seem happy that I was passing them, and expressed some expletives. What is the rule of the road in this situation? Should I have poked along at 25 mph for two miles until I reached Highway 92?"
