comment Is it legal to pass a car on the right when that car is turning?
I also make sure I stop 2-3 car lengths before the junction so it's clear that the cars can safely turn right. I believe I have a right to be on the road, but there is no need to make life difficult for other users

comment how do you make a chain longer with a simple chain breaker?
And if you didn't do that you can just take a piece of the offcut chain and use two smart-links/fast-links. s. you might want to cut the existing chain a bit short to take a long bit of spare chain so you don't have two removable links togetjer

comment Flying with your bike
Last time I flew BA they would take a bike (or any sporting equipment) for free - it just counted as one of your bags. So it's worth calling around

comment Is it possible to estimate road grade while riding?
I have the climbs around here calibrated in "how close to losing my breakfast" (uphill) and "am I going to need clean underwear" (downhill). Admittedly it's not a unit that has caught on with geographers - but it works for me.

comment What is different about cycling in London?
It's not just the drivers - assume all pedestrians are going to step out in front of you. Especially if they are actually staring at their iPhone while walking

comment Why do you think I nearly fell on this turn?
Only brake in a straight line and upright - same rule as a motorbike and the same reason
