Sharing the road with bicycles

Recently, as I was riding my bicycle along Route 30, I met another rider that was riding on the wrong side of the road, facing traffic. As we met, I mentioned that they were riding on the wrong side of the road. Expecting a response other than acceptance of my comment, I was surprised to see the person cross to the correct side, but the incident reminded me that it is time to review the laws applicable to bicycling. Every year there are new bicyclists, and they, and their parents, may not know all the vehicle and traffic laws that apply, and even seasoned bikers are often ignorant of the laws, or perhaps choose not to obey them.
