No I don't just ride to starbucks. But I'm not racing and I don't ride like I am. The farther away I am from help the more conservative I'll be. I save the 'pushing the bike' for the track or a closed course where there's help close by.
I don't know about "a closed course" but a full day's drive away for the ambulance ain't the place to play tough guy.
