I was drawing the distinction with operating, but you do raise some codified
differences -- flashing lights, etc.
Perhaps I should try again:
in terms of the law, operating a bicycle on the road requires the operator to
obey all rules applying to the operation of an automobile, unless explicitly
claimed in the code.
This gets around the 'flashing lights' problem, and using 'operating' gets
around regestration, licensing, etc.
