I know, this may be better suited to the Commuting rather than C&A forum, but I like you guys better
It was windy this morning, but luckily mostly at my back (SW @ 30mph, gusting to 40) My morning ride is West to East, so I'm fine, at least until I head home...
The last 1.5 miles I managed to catch the draft of a University work truck. It let me cruise into campus at 25-30mph with minimal effort. So much fun to just fly like that! I would have thanked the guy, but he took right turn where I went left, and I didn't get to do more than a wave If he even saw it, I don't know if he got my intentions, but at least I tried. The funniest part was watching other drivers' faces as I blew past. I don't think they realized I wasn't really trying due to the draft.
Drafting can be a fun cheap thrill, do any of you guys do this through traffic? How does surrounding traffic react? Do you worry about getting into a wreck/crashing? Just curious!
