It's a great time to get into bike fixing. The rise of the online how-to video means you can get expert walkthroughs of almost any specific problem, but if you're just getting started, following these five basic groundrules will make everything else easier.
In the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams describes the ultimate torture device:
When you are put into the Total Perspective Vortex, you are given just one momentary glimpse of the entire unimaginable infinity of creation, and somewhere in it a tiny little mark, a microscopic dot on a microscopic dot, which says, 'You are here.'"
I imagine Duncan Clark has a good idea of how this feels. Along with his co-author Mike Berners-Lee, he's spent the last few years studying international politics, the workings of the fossil fuel industry, and the latest research to take stock of where we are with climate change – and it's not pretty.
HOFOR (formerly known as Københavns Energi) and 10:10 Danmark together took the initiative in 2012 to initiate the campaign Sommer Closure which should put focus on the big potential of saving energy and CO2 by closing down the district heating system correctly during the summer. This year we are running the campaign once again.
It is estimated that more than half of the Danish households heated by district heating systems do not close down their district heating system for summer, or do it wrongly. If done correctly, both the heating bill and the CO2 emission can be avoided. That is why we initiate the Summer Closure campaign.

Sluk for sommerventilen og cirkulationspumpen
For at sommerlukke skal du slukke for cirkulationspumpen til radiatoranlægget og lukke for anlæggets sommerventil. Du kan se, hvor disse er placeret på diagrammet herunder. Du skal dog være opmærksom på, at ikke alle fjernvarmeanlæg er opbygget på samme måde. Hvis du er i tvivl, kan du kontakte dit lokale forsyningsselskab eller VVS’er. De ved det. I forbindelse med kampagnen er det også muligt at ringe til EnergiTjenesten og gratis få svar på spørgsmål omkring lukning af dit fjernvarmeanlæg.
