This is purely a matter of perception perspective, what can seem safe or reasonable to a non-cyclist can often IME be very unsafe or totally impractical. My experience, and thinking on the subject, take and listen to local advice, but don't switch off your own eyes, or brain. It is good practice even on the most familiar of territory to keep yourself alert to changes in conditions, traffic flows, infrastructure etc. in order to stay as safe as possible.

Kids have no perception of risk. Why should adults become 100% risk adverse?
Half the fun of recreational cycling is xeploring new routes. And if they dangerous you don't go back.
