Your president took a short bike ride in the countryside around Warwick this weekend and was surprised to discover that bike brake levers are different in UK. The front brake is that handle on the right, which almost gave me a nasty shock on a fast downhill. A second bike had the same config. Lesson: check the gear before setting out. Never mind Brexit; British bikers are already confusingly  different.
