    I would recommend a gel seat if you are cycling, makes such a difference, I think they are about £6 in Wilkinsons, I was given mine by someone who insisted I needed one.
    Agreed, but don't get a slip-on cover (see my note above)

    Jenny, I don't have much road sense but I did get used to the level of traffic, mind you I am not in a busy place although tractors overtaking me are a little scary!

    As a cyclist, you just have to assume that:
    1. No one has seen you on your bike
    2. All drivers are idiots and going to do something unexpected/stupid/dangerous/illegal (delete as apporpriate)
    If you keep those points in mind, signal so that people know what you're doing and assert your right to the road where necessary, you'll be fine. I cycled for many years in London, and didn't have an accident. Don't forget that much of the time you are moving faster than the traffic or at least keeping up with it.

    If you do feel vulnerable, find a less busy route avoiding that bottleneck. It's much easier on a bike to cut through side streets. Also have a look at the London Cycling Campaign routes
