I had to work today but being a slow day I took a long lunch and took my bike to a local MUP. The MUP is only 5 miles long so I did two out and backs. It was very windy on the out portion so I stayed on the small ring in the front and just kept up my rpms. As I was coming back from my first lap I passed a fellow who looked about 60 just leaving the parking lot on a comfort bike. I made a slow lap around the parking lot and headed back into the wind. I figured I would catch him fairly soon. I didn't see him again until the 3 mile marker. He had stopped and was starting again just ahead of me. I sped up a little to catch him and he kept looking over his shoulder and speeding up. I kept speeding up and got about 2 feet behind him. He was sitting up so straight he was easy to draft. He was going straight into a strong wind at 18.5 mph on a comfort bike with a front shock. We exchanged pleasantrys and I drafted him until the 5 mile marker at the end of the trail. I could'nt beleive how fast he could ride into that head wind. When he stopped I noticed a big odd looking hub on his bike. I asked him if he had drum brakes. He said no, it's an electric motor that aides me when I pedal. I wish I had my camera with me. It was one of these
