What should you do when you are traveling on the road and you have two bicyclists riding parallel together, holding up traffic, and the speed is 55 miles per hour, yet they are going about 20? You can't pass them because of the road conditions. What should a person do?

Bike riders on a road or highway who travel slower than the road's average speed should be riding as far to the right as possible, Kansas Highway Patrol 2nd Lt. John Eichkorn said. If they are not, and you are driving a car behind them, all you can do is slow down and wait until you come to a point where conditions are right for passing them.

"The main thing to remember is to be courteous to each other," Eichkorn said. "We don't want to have more problems than already exist."
