I hardly ever ride group stuff, but sometimes catch a fast noob rider that I'm sceered to pass (visualize very tight twist stuff with small straights. If catch a seasoned rider, they just wave me past, like everyone, np, but noobs take awhile to figure this out). So I'm like stuck off pace now. Just about every time this happens, a fast rider comes up behind and I let him pass me, but now we are BOTH stuck behind the noob as he, too, is sceered to pass the noob!
So. The guys that passes me, always seasoned, have their own warning code worked out. Some lower a leg on the side of the problem, like gravel. Some lower their left arm to show sudden slow down.
My thing is that it's up to me to guess what the sigs mean. Just stay back far enough to that I don't hit him.
