From what I have seen, it is apparently OK to ride:


on sidewalks, even if I am over 15 years old


on the wrong side of the street

over to the other side of a street anytime

the wrong way on one way streets

side-by-side with a friend, even when going around parked cars

between cars stopped at a light to get to the head of the line.

Also I do not need to:


wear a helmet

display a light at night

stop at stop signs


stop at red lights


pay attention to “No Turn On Red” signs


pay any parking fees when locking my bike anywhere I please.


So please keep your eyes open for me, as I am all over the neighborhood.
