Cyclists beware, the New York City Police Department is kicking off a ticket blitz Wednesday that targets riders who break the rules of the road.

The two-week long bike safety initiative "Operation Safe Cycle" runs through August 26.

Police say they will be targeting cyclists that do not stop at red lights, do not follow traffic signals or signs, ride against traffic or on the sidewalk, and fail to yield to pedestrians.

They will also keep an eye out for drivers who obstruct bicycle lanes.
