Ditto on the take your lane. If on a road with no bike lane that feels narrow, take the full lane and let the driver behind you worry about it. One of the more dangerous things to do in city biking is trying to hug the edge of the road so that drivers feel comfortable whizzing by you. By taking you lane, you largely eliminate that problem and the only way the car can pass you is if no car is coming in the other direction, thus the driver has plenty of room to swerve around you.
