Back before cycling became hip, we were a subculture of nerds and enthusiasts and granola types. We would always smile at each other when we saw another cyclist, because we were pretty rare. We would definitely stop and help another cyclist with a flat or other mechanical problem. We were the goofy types that smiled too much and wore backpacks with both straps. Now all the fucking cool kids cycle and have aloof attitude and they're fucking lame.

I stopped to help a guy with a flat yesterday; he didn't need any help but he was so delighted somebody stopped.
