Keep to the Right and Ride only two Abreast – Keep as far to the right as practical, moving left to avoid hazards and to position yourself in the appropriate designated through or turn lanes. No more than two bicyclists should ride side by side on a public roadway.
Signal Your Turns – hand signals should be given to alert motorists, pedestrians and other bikers of your intentions.
Ride with Traffic – Motorists are not looking for bicyclists riding on the wrong side of the road. State law requires that cyclists ride with the flow of traffic.
Ride in a Straight Line and Avoid Car Doors – Opening parked car doors can seriously injure cyclists. Keep at least an open car door distance away from parked cars and ride in a straight line where there are gaps between parked cars.
Make Left Turns Safety – There are two ways to make a left turn.
1.) Like a Car: signal, move into the left turn lane and turn left
2.) Like a pedestrian: ride straight to the far-side crosswalk, walk your bike across, merge back with traffic.
When using the second method, care should be given when merging back with traffic.
