When I was in HS, I used to ride my bike to work and used to draft (but I was behind to the right — you know hoe if you get that “sweet spot” the suction pulls you along like a madman but if you need to you can fall back.

But that was a LONG time ago.

One could get some good speeds, but falling at 35 mph on a bicycle is very dangerous.

I ride a mountain bike, and my days riding a racing bicycle are over.

One reason I ride the mountain bike is that with the drivers around here, I may have to go into the grass to avoid getting run over. Louisiana drivers.
