I'm not about to stop riding on the roads after more than 50 years, but I won't ride in large training groups anymore because of the risks associated with pissing drivers off. I seem to do a good enough job of it on my own and the "pack mentality" breeds aggression. Too many idiots on both sides of the bumper.
