Biking in the city may seem intimidating, but a bit of preparation is always helpful. A few things to keep in mind:

  • Pedestrians have the right of way, and you should always keep an eye out for them, whether they step out onto the street or are using the pedestrian crossings in the bike lanes
  • Watch out for opening car doors, keeping an eye out for stopped cars and taxis. On one-way streets, stay to the left side
  • Always check, and double check, at an intersection to avoid a turning car on either side
  • Don’t lock your bike on a bus stop sign or tree
  • Observe stop lights, especially red ones
