passenger assistance

Never noticed before. I have seen the back rider look for the driver, but this lady was looking and then signaling lane changes and turns. Well Cool, thought I. Caught my attention way back in traffic. Her arm pointing over into the other lane was....different. She was turning a bit and getting the cage driver's eye contact, then pointing. May be old school, but first time I have seen it in action.

A well trained passenger will help point out road hazards on group rides too. At least my passenger does. 👍🏼
