Living life is risky. I hate flying, particularly take off and landing and all the time in between, even though I know that the number of aircraft related deaths world wide is a small fraction of the tens of thousands of automobile deaths each year in the US. It is strange that we accept 40,000 annual traffic deaths as normal. As you ride your bike you will gain confidence in your ability to handle any situation you may come across. Again don't over think it, ride your bike and just do it.
"When I hear another express an opinion, which is not mine, I say to myself, He has a right to his opinion, as I to mine; why should I question it. His error does me no injury, and shall I become a Don Quixot to bring all men by force of argument, to one opinion? If a fact be misstated, it is probable he is gratified by a belief of it, and I have no right to deprive him of the gratification."
