I haven't been riding for long (6 months) and my car has died (fkn 3 years old, bought it brand new.. fml) and I'm now riding my bike to work while it's being fixed. Unfortunately, my mum isn't dealing with the idea of me riding an hour each way everyday, through the city aswell and bursts into tears whenever I leave for work. Instinctively it annoys me because I know it's not that dangerous at all (based on experiences) but she seems to think I'm going to die every time I leave the house and won't listen to my reasoning. Has anyone dealt with something similar? how did you deal with it?
