What are other hand signals for bikers to know? How about group riding etiquette?
You know the helmet tap or palm down to the road with an up and down motion. These meaning there's an obstruction or a COP up the road. Bikers seem to give these warnings a lot less these days.
Usually when you are in a group or there are riders behind you, you will lower your arm and point down to debris or hazards that they might not see (since they are close to your rear wheel). The lowered arm works well to warn riders behind you for a multitude of dangers ahead. You should also use the right turn and left turn hand/arm signals. Since most of the danger in group rides are the riders behind you, you need to signal them the most. Other verbal signals to riders ahead of you is telling them you are passing them, usually a "On your right!" or "On your left!" will let the riders ahead of you know where you are and where you are headed. Hope that helps.
If it wasn't illegal, some of those holier-than-thou spandex buns should be run off the road.
