No. They are supposed to obey all road rules. Including exiting road to let faster traffic by if they are impeding movement.

It is not acceptable for leisure cyclists to take their time on busy roads. They are supposed to move faster or let the faster traffic pass. It is not fair that they slow down vehicles and they cannot move aside. Check out cyclist laws at http://bicyclesafe.com/.

Yes it is legal and you are supposed to stay at least 3 feet from them .

So, we're at the mercy of these cyclists who show no respect AT ALL for vehicle drivers who have a schedule to keep?

They are not supposed to ride in the middle of the lane if they cannot keep up with traffic, i.e. the posted speed limit.

I come across group of 10-20 three days a week on a 45mph curvy road causing traffic to a crawl for approx 5 miles. Can I complain to authorities?

I'm a very patient person otherwise, but at end of 10hr work day and 80mile commute daily, I'm ready to get home. Am I being unreasonable?

They are supposed to ride single file not abreast of each other so yes you can complain to your state police or county sheriff.
