We do that. But there are occasions when we could use other signals, to indicate when to spread out more and not follow too closely, etc., for riders who aren't as familiar with the hazards on a particular stretch of road.
Also, our rides include everything from hybrids to mountain bikes to fatbikes to road bikes. A hazard that wouldn't trouble a bike with 700x38 or wider tires might be catastrophic for a skinny tire.
But offhand I can think of only one fall over the past year, a fellow who scrubbed a curb on a cul-de-sac turnaround. So I may be overthinking this. Still, it could be useful to agree on a hand signal for "spread out, don't tailgate" that won't be mistaken for "I'm a helicopter!" or "I have gas!"
