Last year on this ride, I was cruising along at about 16mph all by myself and was overtaken by 4 tandem's in a pack. Without any additional effort on my part, my cruising speed went up to 19mph. I've been in a pace line or two in my time, but I never got sucked up in a vacuum like that in my life.
It was a very pleasant 10 miles.
