Although this question isn't for me I'll answer it anyway. Thankfully, no, I
live in a cycle friendly city. Calgary has hundreds of kilometres of bike
trails and pretty wide shoulders.  I've never been knocked off my bike. In
fact, my fiancée and I rode in to work today.

Granted our city is also an urban sprawl and we had to drive 1/3 of the way
to a park where we start from. Now that the transit strike is over things
seem to be moving much more smoothly.
