Looking behind you without swerving — an essential riding skill

For new riders, simply glancing back with your hands on the brake hoods may work, but this method often causes the bar to turn in the direction you are looking.
This technique is better:
To look left, move you right hand toward the center of the handlebar near the stem, then drop your left hand off the bar as you turn your head to look back.
