Today's Times-Union has a filler ad on page 7A that gives safety rules

-Go With the Traffic Flow. Ride on the right in the same direction as
-Obey All Traffic Laws. A bicycle is a vehicle and you are a driver
-Yield to Traffic When Appropriate
-Stay Alert at All Times
-Look Before Turning
-Watch for Parked Cars

"Wear a symbolic hat shaped somewhat like a helmet."
I keep hoping for PSA messages directed at motorists, too.
