A couple of rules
Stay in the right lane: use the lane on the right side of the road. Do not ride on pedestrian paths, shopping streets, sidewalks or highways.
Do not park your bike anywhere: Always lock your bicycle safely and do not park on the street or in the path reserved for pedestrians.
Avoid being an obstacle for other types of traffic: Look before crossing, so as not to turn or stop suddenly. Do not tick off parked vehicles; you have to make others understand what you are thinking of doing - making hand signals and making eye contact.
