passing another rider

Only had my M2 for a few months but this thought has crossed my mind once or twice.....
What if you're out for a ride and come up behind another rider that's going a bit slower and they are in the blocking position within the lane. Do you pass in the other tire track (non blocking)? Or, do you pass like a car would and go into the other lane when it is clear?

You treat the bike like a car and pass in the other lane.
If I saw a bike come up beside me I'd be mighty surprised and who knows what might hit each other!
Always give a full lane to a bike no matter where its in that lane.
