In recent times there are many mail exchanges in forum, discussions among public. In all that I thought of putting a post that cycling in Bangalore is not un-safe as being discussed.
1. Stick to the left most end of the road.
2. Even at left most end of the road if someone honks from behind there is no space to move just keep cycling others will change path.
3. Speed is fine but breaking is not as effective as bigger vehicles.
4. Use hand signals.
5. When a driver looks at you return the stare.
6. Worst situation use Kannada words.
