BE PREPARED; Cyclists have all the same rights and are subject to all of the same duties and regulations applicable to drivers of motor vehicles. New York Biking --

• Ride in the street, not on the sidewalks (unless the rider is age 14 or younger).
• Ride with traffic, not against it.
• Stop at red lights and stop signs. Obey all traffic signals, signs and pavement markings, and exercise due care to avoid colliding with pedestrians, motor vehicles or other cyclists.
• Use marked bike lanes or paths when available, except when making turns or when it is unsafe to do so. If the road/lane is too narrow (12 ft. or less) for a bicycle and a car to travel safely side by side, you have the right to ride in the middle of the travel lane. Bicycling is permitted on all main and local streets, even when no designated bike route exists.
• Be equipped with a white headlight and a red taillight, as well as a bell or horn and reflectors.
• Don't wear earphones. By law you may wear one ear-bud, but keeping your ears clear is a much safer choice.
• Wear a helmet. Helmets are required by law for children age 13 or younger and working cyclists, helmets are a good idea for cyclists of all ages.
