The Complete 10 Secrets to Cycling with Traffic

The last two weeks on BikingToronto have seen us publish 10 “Secrets” to Cycling with Traffic.

These aren’t secrets of course, but they are things that new cyclists sometimes don’t know… so we thought we’d publish a series of them to help people new to riding their bikes around Toronto (and other big cities) learn a little more a little faster.

Here is the complete list of tips:

  1. Drivers Don’t Want to Kill You
  2. Ride in a Straight Line
  3. Play by the Rules
  4. Avoid the “Stoplight Squeeze”
  5. Signal Sensibly
  6. Take That Lane
  7. Make Them THINK You’re Unpredictable
  8. Ride With Others
  9. Avoid the Right Hook
  10. Practice Your Route

Do you know of other tips or “secrets” that we haven’t covered in these 10 that new people discovering the joys of transportation on 2 wheels would benefit from?  Let us know in the comments and we may add them to this series.

Even better… do you have an idea of a post series that BikingToronto should publish?  Let us know!
