One thing I really cannot tahan is cycling on roads that have a left turn lane which is 2 lanes wide. This means I have to filter right to avoid getting channeled into the left turn, assuming I wanna go straight ahead.
There's one along Lornie road thats really quite annoying. First, there's a left turn at the PIE at the end of the Lornie Road and the beginning of Adam road. I have to filter lanes to keep on going straight. Then a short distance away, there's another one going into the PIE again. I have to filter 3 lanes across and that can be freaky on bad days.
Another one I frequently go pass is the one along Braddell road, there's a 2 lane left turning into Toa Payoh. Traffic moves quite quickly along that stretch cos of some cars coming out of the CTE. Filtering lanes can be quite a hair-raising experience!
Luckily the driver behind me today was a decent guy/gal. He/she let me filter lanes and didnt overtake or horn me when I took control of the lane to prevent anyone from cutting me off. Drivers like this make commutes less stressful.
A big thanks to whoever you are.
