Difference do things right and you won't get attacked by sharks, and no you (most likely) won't get melanoma.

You can, and do, do everything right cycling on paved roads (obeying the letter and spirit of the law) will get verbal abuse hurled at you on a daily basis, you will have your life threatened, and odds are if you get hurt/killed the perp will get away without punishment. By the gene lottery I'm fortunate being a guy--I get half the verbal abuse I know some women cyclists get hurled at them.
