2. Familiarize yourself with local traffic laws and regulations pertaining to cyclists. Understanding your rights and responsibilities on the road is crucial for safe riding.

3. Be visible to drivers by wearing bright and reflective clothing. Use lights and reflectors on your bike, especially when riding at night.

4. Obey traffic signals and signs, just like any other vehicle on the road. Signal your turns and use hand signals to communicate your intentions to drivers.
