    Not sure if troll thread or...

    However, I went on a group ride last night and there was some communication that irked me and was downright dangerous. The trail system is in a county park, so there are roads and light traffic. On top of that the trail crosses a road outside of the park, again light traffic. We were going to cross the road outside the park and the leader looks both ways and yells that its clear. Each person after yells the same.

    Now, I'm not an etiquette master, however where I used to live, the roadie group would yell 'on your own' when crossing a road - meaning cross at your own risk and make your own decision. This way, if you get clipped, its your own fault, not anyone else telling you its clear. I liked this.

    So what is the right way to do things? I for sure look for myself and don't rely on others judgement, but I don't want to be responsible by yelling for others.

    Agree. In a similar situation, a driver that causes an accident because a passenger says "It's clear" cannot use that as a legal defense. Everyone must look for themselves. You're driving your bike, not the person in front of you.
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    Normally, I use full sentences. Sometimes I resort to sign language for my deaf friends.

    I prefer a messenger pigeon. Doesn't take up much room in my pack, and can even be awesome-strapped to the bike if you ride packless!
