what I understood from the text, is that OP did not have priority and forced more defensive drivers to yield.
This is what the OP literally said:

I assume when on the road in an uncontrolled intersection where priority-to-the-right would apply, the same applies to you on the bicycle. In practice what has happened for me is cars will often just yield. And I instinctively maybe have some momentum going and maybe it's downhill a bit so I gladly accept their yield. Again doesn't feel like anything dangerous to me or which would endanger others, but would like to know the rule.

I'd interpret this as:

- I understand there's a 'priority from the right' rule
- I think this applies to bicycles
- Cars do yield to me in this situation, so am I right?

Maybe the OP can come back and clarify. If he means the opposite to my interpretation, then a reading of 36.2, answers his question...
