Road Biking Scare

I have been on the road way too much this year and am trying to stay off a plane for a few months.

More dangerous than flying though are my miles on the bike.

According to Strava I have rode 698 miles this year. My goal is 3,000.

Today I had a few asshats and one robot try and run me off the road.

There is not much I can do about some nut thinking it is funny to brush me. It is one of the risks of the road.

More frightening was a Tesla whose driver was trusting autopilot and/or busy texting and searching the web. The Tesla came within inches of my wheel at 40 plus miles/hour and as it passed I saw the car ease back between the lines.
