That feeling when a truck barrels past at more than twice your speed, less than 50cm to your right.

My immediate thought was that where we ride, it would be lucky if it was only twice our speed. Living regionally, we are mostly riding on roads with a 100km/hr speed limit, and often they have little or no shoulder, a different riding experience to the bike paths and roads of Wollongong that I road before returning to Armidale.
