I ride with a couple of guys that have this fear, if they do happen to have to get on a street they are a danger to themselves and others with their unpredictability. I don’t see them ever getting over this as their only change in their attitude has been for the worse as they age.
The thing I despise most about their fear is they are perfectly willing to try and foist it on anyone that will listen. Both of them are what I call late in life cyclists, as they haven’t cycled for a long time and don’t really know much about the cycling world, except you transport your bike to a trailhead then ride.
Sorry about the rant but it’s a sore subject with me.
