are you saying you ride on the wrong side of the road? If so, that's quite illegal in most areas.

comment For a long (25mile each way) commute, what kind of bike should I look at?
For $1000, you can get a pretty decent folding bike. Brompton makes a great bike, and it should be easy for you to find one in the UK.

comment How can one maintain cycling fitness as one ages?
This question could also apply for some younger folks -- I have some calcium loss in my bones, what most folks have about 10 years on from where I am, so I'm interested in how to prevent broken bones.

The bike Gary linked to is the Novara Randonee, and it's a little hard to find in the UK, but it's a similar bike to the Surly LHT and the Trek 520.

+1 Big ol' barends on fat bars are great, I used them for a year before going to the dark side (i.e., drops).

-1, Getting first in line at a stop sign or a light will antagonize drivers. Taking the lane (where sharing the lane is dangerous or impossible) is a safe way to cycle.

@Jay - If someone's on the fence about running you off the road, they might hesitate if you have safety gear and are riding legally -- i.e., that makes them clearly in the wrong.

+1, great question! I remember seeing a lot of people posting about cameras in this gadgets forum. You might consider crossposting or posting a link there.
