I should say that I'm not exactly cycling in central London - and nor do I intend to! I'm in one of the more "leafy" boroughs (but still obviously encounter a fair bit of traffic).
The avoiding getting doored tips all make sense and I'll keep them in mind as I plan to go out tomorrow.
One more question - I've seen using your lights in the daytime as something that helps - is that right? And what about bells to warn pedestrians etc? Is that advised?
Will take a look at the book too - thanks.
A static day time light is of little extra use, you’d need a pulser to be most effective, as far as bells go, they are a good idea, but be aware that most ‘ting ting’ type bells get easily drowned out when there’s traffic about, or people are using headphones.
I have one of these. It’s superb, and 140dB is loud enough to get the attention of the doziest headphone engrossed pedestrians.
