I really should have known this.

Pedalling gently downhill I changed into the big ring and managed to throw my chain off to the outside. No worries, I said to my buddy, I will coast to the bottom of the hill, and then stop to sort it when I run out of speed on the next hill.

He then suggested to me I just flick it back on by using the front mech-, pedalling gently and shifting into the small ring. It worked, magic.

And, I have subsequently done this the other way if the chain is off towards the frame side.

Obvious trick really, but I have only been riding 47 years and have never seen anyone else do it, or read about it.

A sheltered life clearly.
