comment Riding into a headwind faster than my top speed - how is it possible?
@Criggie Nice idea, but thanks to Berriedale's hairpin bends, you lose in both directions!

I have found gusts stopping me while pedalling down a 10% grade in the north of Scotland... (Berriedale for anyone who knows the hill)

comment Is commuting 10 km on an empty stomach harmful?
If you feel faint, eat an energy bar. If you feel faint more than once a month or so on such a short run, get checked out for diabetes, as a precaution.

The linked pictures show threaded inserts on the seatstays in just about the perfect place for attaching a pannier rack.

comment Any detriment to hanging a bike by its front wheel?
If the front wheel isn't strong enough for this, you certainly don't want to try riding that bike!

comment If a lane is going to expand should the left lane be taken prior to the expansion?
That last photo shows scary poor visibility into the glare. On days like that, consider a more defensive approach in case of drivers who genuinely can't see you.

comment Where to find bolts for an old Raleigh Bicycle?
British Standard Cycle thread perhaps? 26tpi x various diameters, 7/32 would fit the size range you gave. NB like the other Whitworth-based threads, it is likely to be 55 degree thread angle, not the 60 degrees of metric or American.
