This morning I was doing my loops and at the 14 mile mark I passed another roadie going up a small hill. I pushed a little extra to put some space between him and me when I noticed he was staying with me. He then says, "I[he] needed some motivation." I told him I was turning and he stated he'd follow. Okay I think--the fact I had a guy "drafting" me seemed to give me a bit extra oompf. He follows me turn for turn(and I stated what direction each time so there wasn't an issue/crash) until we get to one point(≈19 miles in) where he stated that he was turning since this was his halfway point. "See you again sometime," I said. BTW, this is where I was getting poured on by the rain during my 35 miler(starting around 17 miles in). Earlier I stated I use the cyclocomputer as motivation and guide to try and keep a good pace. He doesn't have one. Much of the time he was with me we were keeping a 18.5~19.5(hit 20 a few times) mph pace except on several turns and crossing intersections(yield signs--not stop) to ensure safe passage.
