Mostly I ride a commuter bike short distances as an environmentally friendly, cheap and healthy mode of transport.

Occasionally I ride off road on a hard-tail mountain bike.

comment What bicycle design factors affect stopping power?
Highway Code says "large vehicles and motorcycles need a greater distance to stop" [than cars]. Doesn't seem to say anything about bicycles. direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070304

Haven't heard of valve caps with pressure indicators before, think I'll get some for my car and my bikes.
