When riding in a pack, good/clear communication is vital and helps keep riders safe. At Moore Performance we prefer people to use, “non-verbal” communication *, over shouting commands. Often verbal commands can’t be heard, or aren’t clear. For example, someone might say Go, but all people hear is “No”, or “Slow”, or even Bro (not sure what that would mean, but it might confuse you as well. Whereas clear hand signals as show below aren’t affected by the wind noise etc. and means you can all be in tune. The key here is to ensure that you are paying attention to the pack as if you don’t then it can all fall down, and so might we!
I save the loud calls for more urgent hazards.
* use verbal commands if you are not able to point through Non Verbal means, do not risk a crash 🙂
