Use these tips to stay safe while riding in traffic.

Use these tips to stay safe while riding in traffic.

Always utilize the designated left turn lane that is closest to your normal route of cycling. Ideally you want to have the largest legal turning path when executing a turn. Watch and be aware of any oncoming cars making a right turn, they may not be paying attention to anything smaller than a Civic. If the arrow is red DO NOT BLOW THE LIGHT. You are a vehicle on the road and need to obey all lights and signs as well; failing to do so is illegal, puts you in danger, and makes the rest of the cycling community look bad. During times of heavy congestion or when the average speed of a road is much higher than you feel safe merging into, utilize the alternative left-turn. Many states require you to dismount your bike and walk with it inside a crosswalk, however you can reposition yourself on the right side of the traffic flow and wait for the light to change.
