@Callid When the pandemic hit, I gave up riding my bike because I didn't want to risk an injury requiring hospitalization (it happened once already).

Where I live, when I'm out walking, it's difficult enough to get fellow pedestrians to share a *sidewalk* let alone get a motorist to put down their phone, put down their Starbucks, take the buds out of their ears, and share the road with a little old bicyclist trying not to get killed on her way to work on a thoroughfare that never got the memo that bicycles exist and have a right to the road.

But to be fair, the most visible type of bicyclist near me is the pack of bored and undersupervised fourteen-year-olds who weave all over the road as if they're immortal.
