How close do you have to be to another bike before it is considered drafting.
On my ride today I was spinning up a long hill at my pace when I caught up to another rider on the same hill. I didn't have enough in me to pass the other rider so I stayed back about 100'-150' behind the other rider. After I crested the top of the hill I continued spinning on the way down. As I was passing the other rider he called me a jerk. I continued my pace up the next hill and the other rider never caught up to me on the next hill. Was I out of line to lag behind? I am farily new at cycling I have a year of commuting under my belt so I am trying to learn the ropes.
