    I'd have to ask, but I'm guessing no worse than any other family that is car free (or car-light, when 1 parent is off where-ever at work with the car).

    It's what I tell people about bike commuting. "Its not if, it's when", it puts me in the right mental mode for it. Do what you can to avoid it, but accept that it will happen. I've yet to be hit in...

    I choose the shortest major (non-highway) roads from point-a to point-b. Residential streets scare me more than 45mph roads with out shoulders.
