I stopped to help a fellow roadie (I can say that since I have been a roadie now for 4 months, right?) with a flat today, and two (!) different motorists in pickup trucks stopped to see if we needed help. This is in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, which is NOT a bike friendly place.

Think maybe all of Lance's press is making an impression on Joe Q. Public?

Anyway, I see so much on this site about bad experiences with motorists, so I thought I would share the flip side.

Later.

Yes,I think its Lance rubbing off on people(NOT A BAD THINK).
The guys at my factory are talking about the tour.
Nightly theirs discussings about Lance and a few bets going on.
If cycling every gets as popular as football in the U.S. ,Europeans wouldn't know what to do.
