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.
