    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 :smile:

    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!
