I can see if you're going 40 miles in suburban Virginia, the roads are narrow, crooked, and twisted that's a true pain. Man, i'm not sure I'd do it.
Here it's flat, roads are straight, so as long as you have a bike lane, shoulder, or wide outside lane you generally do OK.
You just gotta have really bright clothing, rear blinky even during the day, mirror, and pull over once in a while to let traffic pass you.
