The four golden rules of a good cyclist
1/ Respect the traffic rules
and turn on the lights!
Even if everyone does not...
2/ use your hands before turning
Let other know where you are going,
take a look behind you before turning
3/ Respect the pedestrians
and the other cyclists
Do not stay in the middle of sidewalks
and pay attention to the rings!
4/ Hold your right
Ne restez pas au milieu des voies de circulation,
et restez les uns derrière les autres,
en file indienne
