Get a good headlight and a taillight and/or a large rear reflector in order to be equipped for night riding.

Assume that car drivers cannot see you and ride defensively.

Picking the right gear for what you are doing

Understand how the brake works.

Scan for traffic behind (looking over the shoulder) without swerving.

Learn basic traffic skills like changing lanes; lane positioning (depending on the speed of traffic and the width of the travel lane; lane positioning based on destination at intersections); and yielding and stopping when required by traffic rules.

Learn additional skills like quick turns and quick stops, riding in bad weather and at night, climbing and descending, and on-road bicycle maintenance.
