How to Ride Safely in Traffic

Last month Joe, of Biking Toronto, wrote an outstanding series of 8 short essays on how to ride safely on the streets.

This series is must reading for anyone who rides in the street already, or is unsure, or afraid, about doing so.

As he writes:

These tips will help you become more comfortable faster, as you have now essentially pulled out all the information I've learned over the past 2 years biking Toronto.

These are geared towards downtown cycling, since that's what I'm most familiar with.

These all assume that you already know about proper lighting and safety (ie. helmets) precautions, and know that riding on sidewalks is one of the most unsafe things you can do, for both pedestrians and yourself.
