Let's begin by stating the obvious: Stay off of the throttle when drinking! With that, let's admit that thousands of Dutchmen left bars tonight on bicycles and the police appreciate it. What do the laws in your state say about this? I am curious to know if anyone has had any negative experiences with this. FYI: I live in Texas where the books say that cyclists are subject to all rules that apply operators of any other type of vehicle, license required or not. I haven't found anything published that indicates that this is strictly enforced.
