Everyone who rides a bicycle has to abide by the same road rules as those driving cars. While bicyclists do have to ride with the flow of traffic, they should ride as far to the right of the road as possible. Depending on which Southern California city you live in, you may or may not be allowed to ride a bicycle on the sidewalk. If your city permits bicyclists to ride on the sidewalk, you should. Unfortunately, far too many bicycle accidents occur because drivers attempt to pass on the right or drive in bicycle lanes.
