Thread Box:
Corking a Left Turn at Big Intersection?
Thread started by JeffOYB at 05.6.15 - 8:49 pm

I'm an out of towner who hosts a social ride. I've been inspired by the bike scene I've seen in LA.

I'm trying to see if I can get any help with this question.

I understand the limitations, etc., of corking. We use it sometimes and it works well for us and our local drivers. There's good trust and we don't push their patience.

But we get confused at big left-turns at multi-light intersections. Like, 5-laners -- 2 each way plus a turn lane.

The problem seems to be that we don't know what the next light to turn will be. So we don't know where to stand to control. The drivers like it when we make it clear to them. They want us to know what we're doing. When we do, it works like a charm. (Last year out of 50 rides we got one mean honk, maybe. That's how good.)

We only run into these tricky lefts a few times a season.

Is there any general approach to complex lefts? ...Maybe there's a link to info or graphics out there? THANKS!!!

I'm not sure if this will answer your question or not...i've led a few rides and my general rule is if you approach a green light with five or more seconds on the walk countdown .. take it... someone in the middle if they feel the ride is thinning out should cork. If the ride is tight and no gaps...no need for a cork....I would think the Corker should be on the outside of the turn facing drivers that would be coming towards you. If I were corking I would constantly turn my head to watch where the riders and signal drivers that it's just gonna be another minute or so. You want to give the impression to the drivers That you will be in and out as quickly as possible.
