So this morning, I was riding on my usual commute. The route has a longish stretch of road. I came across a roadie commuter that I thought was going rather slow. So I called "On your left". Overtook him. Kept on my merry way.
After a few minutes, I heard something behind me creeping up. So I thought it was another commuter. I steered towards my right as a gesture to let this person past. For the longest while, nothing. I looked back and it was the fellow I just overtook. Mmmmkay. I wasn't sure what he wants to do. Overtake me or not. I slow, he slowed, I accelerated, so did he.
Decided enough was enough with this weirdness of commuter drafting. Came upon a hill, kicked down to a smaller chainring and hammered the climb. Kept the distance from there on. That hill followed by another one. It was enough to put a nice distance. Strangely he was wearing yellow on a yellow bike!
What a weird experience. Certainly my first time having someone drafting me for a few miles. Atleast let me draft you in return! Happened to you before?
