I was out with a friend at the weekend at a Scottish trail centre and we came across a guy riding on his own without a lid on. He seemed a nice bloke and was quite chatty at junctions/tops of steep climbs etc and for sections of the trail rode along behind my friend. He seemed pretty keen to join us, which normally would be fine by me.
Thing is, although we both wanted to be friendly and made the effort to chat with him, I think we both felt a bit uncomfortable riding with him. I was wondering if anybody else had any views on this or had any ideas on how to let folk know that wearing a lid whilst biking is a good idea, without coming across as the MTB police.
Judging by the first few comments I guess people think this is a troll - it isn't and I don't want to get into a debate about whether helmets work etc. I'm interested in hearing from people who might also feel uncomfortable with this, and to hear what you did/would do.
Any of you had experience of this type of thing and how did you deal with it?
