Hello All. I live in a small town, lots of country roads to bike on - which is great, but I have extreme anxiety over going out there by myself to bike. I can bike around town no problem, but I prefer to get longer rides in and the only way to do that is to hit the country roads. I am nervous about getting hit, dogs chasing me, etc.. I have had a few problems over the years, rude comments by stupid teenagers, some dogs, and once almost got hit by a truck. I suffer from anxiety already which doesn't help. I do have a biking partner on occasion, but I don't want to rely on him and want to be able to go out by myself. Does anyone have any tips for keeping calm while biking alone? I've been out enough with my friend to know the best routes for me to go, but getting out there by myself is the hardest part. I haven't found any other women to bike with, and the nearest bike club is about an hour away. Thank you for any advice!
