Car-lite and assuaging an octogenarian parent's fears.
My 83-year-old father told me today that he is scared to death when I go out on my bike, apparently because I'm not encased in a steel cocoon. Although I still have a car, I use it only when I must, and for most errands I use my bike. How can I reassure him that I'm safe? (It doesn't help that I've had some minor spills lately; an occasional wipeout is part of biking life, but he doesn't see it that way.)
