Default Four sets of essential points for cyclists to remember

As promised 10 days ago here are the pithy points.

To recap: The object is to have memorable phrases to cover the important

You can see a pretty web page at
and from there you can get to an expanded list.

Rules of the ride

* See and be seen
* You are traffic
* Space doesn't hurt
* Prepare for junctions

Traps of the trip

* Junction jumpers
* Rubbish Road
* Never overtake lorries
* Loony left hookers

Bits of the bike

* Size suits
* Wheels work
* Brakes bite
* Mechanical mischief

Joy of the Journey

* Beauty of back routes
* Speed of commute
* Fun of fitness
* Independence or party

Please remember when explaining them to somebody that the FIRST
important thing is to remember the points themselves and ONLY THEN can
you hang the more detailed meanings onto the mantra.
