- Yield to pedestrians.
If you ride on the sidewalk:
Ride with traffic. If the lane is overly narrow or in an unsafe condition, or if you feel uncomfortable with the passable, consider cycling nearer to the center of the lane.
Give yourself space from parked cars to avoid risking a crash if a car door opens in front of you.
Always wear a helmet.
Be visible. The city requires all cyclists use headlights and rear reflectors after sunset.
Know and follow the rules of the road. Don't swerve in traffic or between parked cars, obey all traffic signals, and ride in the direction of traffic.
