Cyclists use these secret signals ‘not intended’ to be known by drivers to warn of hazards

Matt Woodcock, training manager at Cycling UK said drivers could use the signal to prepare their vehicle and give riders “extra space”.

He said: “These signals are used by members of cycling groups to communicate with each other about hazards, or to signal their intentions to move in the group.

“They are not intended to be obvious to drivers, so we would encourage cyclists to give clear hand signals to drivers, as shown in the Highway Code, where necessary.

“However, if you are driving and see a cyclist using one of these club signals to warn of a pothole ahead or indicate that they need to move out, be prepared to give them extra space.”
