I'm right handed and right footed, so just seems natural to me to throw my right leg over the saddle and using my right foot to power the first pedal stroke. My left leg stays on the kerbside until I start moving away and the stopping is just the reverse.Hadn't thought of it in those terms but yes I agree.
Just fall away from the traffic.
Alas, that means when you stop you're leaning into the traffic flow, ie, towards danger. Should you fall, that's the direction you'll go, and the consequences of that are potentially quite grizzly.I’m right handed but put my right foot down when stoping and push away with my left leg on the pedal when clipped in, is more natural and when falling, if you fall into the traffic your right leg is free to save you and B save the rear derailleur from getting bent.
