I was going to enumerate the points I agree with, but I think many of them can be summed up by: don’t be a dick. I do particularly like points fourteen through twenty.
Always a great general rule, but some specific anti-dick guidelines can be useful for the less self-aware.
Since you’re already well over 10, how ’bout adding:
21. Drive your bike. Learn if you’re not sure how.
Works for me. Maybe leave off everything after the first period.

For the ladies: trail a bright chartreuse boa from your helmet at the ratchet like a ponytail–a great attention-getter.
I’d love one, too …
I have such a “tail” on all of my helmets!
Wave at another cyclist? what?
Brain fart …
