I call that my "innate sense of my own mortality".        

I don't see anything wrong with going 'slow' due to not feeling confident to go faster. I ride what I feel is a quick pace, but it's anything but fast.

Now that I'm here in N America for a couple weeks, everything feels so much quicker than what I'm used to. Road speeds in Taiwan are much lower than here. I can't imagine going down the freeway on a bike at 70 or so, much less riding in LA traffic. I'd be much too chicken to go track speeds. But that doesn't mean I don't enjoy riding, and hats off to those of you who like going that fast.
