Sorry to hear about your close call. It's troubling that we have to factor risk of being run-over on to our training. In last few years, I over indexed on the risk and ended up riding more and more indoors. I think that ended up having a negative impact on my mental health. I'm trying to ride outside more these days, but am very conscious of where I ride. Wide shoulders or bike paths preferred. But I still worry that my wife, kids, and mother would get a call that something happened to me. I understand life is about weighing risks, but it's sad that we have to weigh this risk.
