IMO the key is simply to uderstand that your bike is a vehicle, and when you ride on the road you have the same rights and responsibilities as other vehicle operators. Be predictable, obey traffic laws, and keep your speed up.

The "bible" of effective cycling is John Forester's book "Effective Cycling," in print and available through larger booksellers. Effective cycling courses are given by experienced cyclists; check through your local bike shop.

For a free e-resource, you could do worse than to check out the Pennsylvania Bicycle Driver's Manual.
