I, personally, only have been riding my bike on isolated rural gravel and dirt roads and/or trails because that is where I live. Once in a while, we pack up the bikes into a vehicle, drive them to town and ride around town or on a bike trail. However, I have truck fear when it comes to the road. Not from personal experience but my husband has actually heard truckers boast about blowing bikes off the road. And, relatives of ours used to take long bike tours but quit doing that after trucks (I'm talking about long haul semis) drove them off the road.
I know truckers are under a lot of pressure. Probably underpaid, overworked, under tremendous time pressure and stressed out. And probably at least 95% of them are kind, nice people who would never consider trying to harm a bicyclist.
What kind of experiences have some of you had with trucks?
