From one cyclist to another, or Keeping the rubber side down.

1. Don't ride without lights at night.
2. Assume cars can't see you.
3. Signal like a motherfucker, or else.
4. Don't turn in front of a moving car.

I won't even get to riding without a helmet, because my dumb ass has done that plenty.

But if you do any of these things at 11:30 p.m., you don't get to lecture me while your back wheel is under my front tire because you've been pretending your life is a Sonic Youth video. At this point, you're really lucky you're able to complain, and the reason only your front wheel is under my front tire can be called the grace of fucking god. Get the fuck out of the street, get a helmet, and get a fucking bike light.
