    The young guy doesnt get asked.
    Back when I was young, that was not true. I also have needed help and had riders go by me without saying anything nor even looking at me.

    I once did ask two young women if they needed help (Central PA near Penn State) and the one say yes but then her friend started screaming about how just because they were women they did not need help. So I left.

Utter bullshit. And yet it happens over and over and over. And it really needs to stop. As I said, earn your Good Samaritan merit badge somewhere else.
    Bob, if you find the kindness of strangers so unbearable, I think you should buy yourself some rollers and stay indoors. You're starting to sound beyond grouchy. :-/

    So nice to see that the Good Samaritan posers have come out of hibernation

    That's a bit rude with the bird image, and I am guessing you are being sarcastic. I am one of those who gets asked if I am OK frequently. It kind of stopped for me now, because I try one or all of these things:

    1 - Look up at the sky, like bird watching.
    2 - Pretend to drink from my bottle.
    3 - Stop at spots with wider grassy areas, or trail intersection, and be far off; outside normal talk and hearing range.

    When I do #3, I notice the so called friends resisting getting off the trail just to see if I am okay, some prefer to yell at the top of their lungs instead of getting off the trail, and they call themselves good Samaritan. One biked into the intersecting trail to ask me, and I am like oh nooooo! I guess I wasn't worth getting into the grass for it.

    I don’t know...Bob doesn’t look like that bird, but the rest is pretty much spot on.

    I know both infinitebuffalo and rcannong100 in real life. I can certify that infinitebuffalo meant no harm and that rcannon100 didn't interpret it that way. Both good people.
