I often get asked for directions while on my bicycle! Cyclists are accessible; we can easily carry on a conversation since we're not inside a soundproof steel box.
Not only are we accessible but it is generally assumed we are locals. It's been a bit of a problem for me since my last move, I've had people asking how to get to the local mall and for directions to the strip bars. The first I didn't know how to get to at the time (only one month in town) and the second I still don't know because I've never been a patron.
People ask me for directions a lot, too. I like it - any opportunity for positive interaction with drivers is always welcome.
