|While I carry a card when riding that has my name and phone number on it, I was shocked when a CHP (Cyclist Hating Patrol) told me I was required to carry ID at all times. What are the laws (in California) concerning identification? Also, why are cyclist immediately in the wrong, in the eyes of the CHP? I had a couple of gravel trucks swerve at me and honk their horns when right on top of me. After unloading, the second truck came back my way and crossed the line into my lane. When I stopped a CHP and told him, his response was, Well, you were probably riding double and out in their lane. I was riding alone and got no sympathy or help.
