Have you stopped to help someone out while riding?
If so, do you assist nearly everyone that looks like they need help?
Do you just mind your own business and continue on?
Do you feel that "it's not my problem", or is it more of a safety concern?
just curious as to how you all view/act/respond to those who seem to be in need of help.
I've been biking since I was a child, but have just recent really gotten into the sport. A couple weeks ago I saw a woman, riding alone, and her saddle was nearly verticle, with the front pointing up. She had no tools, and it pained me to see her attempt to ride like that (why she didn't walk, I don't know). So I stopped and offered to help, since I had the tools in my bag. The rest of my group kept going, but I figured i'd just try to catch up. Anyways, she was hesitant at first to let me help, but was very appreciative after.
This was on a very heavily used MUP (Los Gatos Creek Trail). I was kind of surprised that no one else stopped to help...our maybe I'm the only person that carries tools every time I ride.
