Ride With Traffic
Avoid Busy Streets
A common mistake bicycle riders make is to take the same route they would take when they were driving. It’s a good idea to take a different route with slower-moving cars. Not to say cyclists don’t have a right to the road, but it’s better than being involved in an accident. You may find you can get to most places by only crossing the busiest streets rather than actually traveling on them.
Don’t Wear Headphones!
This is just common sense. You need all of your attention focused on what you’re doing, and sometimes more importantly, others. It’s more important to hear what’s around you when you’re biking than when you’re driving.
