Whether you are an experienced cyclist or have never rode a bike before, it’s important to let other drivers know if you are stopping or turning.

Below, we outline the top three hand signals that you need to know in order to stay safe on the road and ensure predictable riding.
When everyone is being safe, bike riding is much more fun and you’re less likely to get into trouble with other traffic! Practice these signals, get a feel for what they are like to perform while riding, and then use them whenever needed.
