Tips for urban bicyclists

Well, it's that time of year again - time for urban bicyclists to get off the bus and hit the road with their bikes instead. Chicagoan Dave Glowacz, otherwise known as Mr. Bike, has a page up at his site giving some really good advice for first-time urban cyclists, including how to best traverse busy city streets, as well as what kinds of lock systems work best in large cities. (Thanks to Gapers Block for pointing this out; be aware that that Mr. Bike page is basically a glorified ad for his book, and that the constant reminders to buy it can really start getting annoying by the end.)
