I've been really impressed by the number of fellow riders, who ask if they can help, when they see you stopped at the road side.
During my regular Sunday rides, almost all cyclists I pass offer some form of acknowledgement, from a girl (she's probably in her 20's, can I still call her a girl? ) who always shouts a very hearty "How do" to the fella who just raises his hand a little off the hoods. Almost all riders on MTB's also tend to say hello.
A few weeks ago, having over ambitiously entered the Tour of the peak sportive, I was constantly given encouragement from more experienced riders, one of whom, seeing me (really) struggling to make the final climb, rode next to me trying to talk me up the hill, a true cycling gent.

Excellent advice.  Its great when you've got the map out and a fellow cyclist stops to see if he/she can give you some route advice and I like it when the person coming towards me warns me of some problem up ahead...Can't stand ignorant folk who can't even be bothered with a nod a head to acknowledge you.

Out riding, this Sunday, we past a good number of other Roadies, most said a good morning, hello or a lift of the hand, nod of the head. A small number just rode on. I put this down to either they were in their own zone, or maybe had passed so many cyclists, they had greeting fatigue.

Nothing worse than the ignorance of other cyclists. I make a point of acknowledging all cyclists but many don't return it. You can understand it if they are just regular commuter-types, but there's no excuse when roadies do it.
