Sorry to hear of the loss of your brother, Joe. So very unfortunate.
As a cyclist and a driver I see so many situations when cyclists apparently have no sense of self preservation, riding side by side and in the traffic lane. I'm sure that what you say about you and John being aware of the dangers and attempting to remain out of traffic. and even still the danger is great. One simple mistake at the wrong time and a life is ruined, and we are tought a lesson once again of the fragility of our mortality.
We need to really be aware of people like this. I was at a friend's house on New Year's day, on Dow's Prarie rd in Mckinleyville, when a moving van pulled up in the driveway claiming to have a delivery of furniture from his parents.
My friend told the driver that no such delivery had ever been discussed with anyone and they probably had the incorrect address.
Later after giving it some thought we both agreed these guys going around on NY day in a moving van were probably crooks. It all just seemed a bit too wierd.
