As Sonoma County increasingly earns a reputation as a bicycling destination (think Tour of California and Levi Leipheimer's GranFondo), tensions between cyclists and motorists seem to be getting worse (or at least, more evident).

Have you had a close encounter out on the road — either on a bike or behind the wheel? Do you have an opinion on what can or should be done to make everyone feel safer and more comfortable while sharing the road?
