Urban Cycling Etiquette


Etiquette is a forgotten art. At least it seems like it in these days of obsessive cell phone use and road rage. Both of which can kill people. Another place where etiquette seems to be lacking is in the car/bicycle world. Green Upgrader reminds us all--cyclists and non-cyclists alike how to keep the roads safe in terms of two wheel transportation. 

First for the motorists: 

Slow down and make room for cyclists.

If there is a bike lane, look out for cyclists, especially when making right-hand turns.

Now for the cyclists:

Obey the rules of the road as they pertain to vehicles; you are not a pedestrian.
