I found this interesting.
i've found that if you look "serious" (lycra kit, preferably team/club), you get more respect than if in civvies.
not sure about the helmet bit, as i never ride without it.
i do have long hair though, so i guess it might confuse people from behind
Similar report from the DfT showed that drivers assessed that lycra /helmet clad cyclists were "competent" and there was no need to either slow down or give room as they did not need it!
