Lucky you: Where I live, there are no bike lanes, so it's a bit risky to take my bike out there. Or so they say: When I take my bike on that road, I can manage to assume that every car is going to run me over and go into the ditch or a driveway whenever a car comes. So I've decided it's worth it to get a rear view mirror and some reflectors for my bike.

I live in a similar place with no bike lanes, many roads without sidewalks, blind hills, and no public transit... and the cars drive like 50-60mph (80-96kph) on these little roads without looking for bicyclists lol.

It suuuuucks...

Edit: Bikes really aren't safe or practical in all places, particularly in the United States that was designed for cars, as much as I'd love it to be.
