    This is essentially a copy and paste of the League of American Bicyclists curriculum for League Certified Instructors, which is heavily focused on vehicular cycling. I wouldn’t call it definitive.

    Many of those are an absolute joy to break, but Rule #9 is about the biggest gift to cycling since, I dunno, the invention of disraeli gears.

    I recently had the opportunity to comply with Rule 71; unfortunately, both parts. https://www.strava.com/activities/2345308740 (just before mile 45)

    You want to adhere to the same rules and laws as when you are driving your car.
    Yeah, no. The definitive rule for urban cycling is simply "assume every driver is trying to kill you and ride accordingly."
