Today I was riding down to the shop... there is a nice stretch with an ever so slight decline where it is not trouble to spin out the bike and then at the end the road starts to rise.

I had the mtb spun out (109 gear inches) and as I hit the rise and geared down a step and approached an intersection a roadie pulled up from right behind me and alongside and gave me a little nod and a smile... I can usually hit close to 45 - 50 kmh on this stretch so either this guy was some kind of fast or he latched on to my back wheel and enjoyed a little pull.

Schwalbe Hurricanes FTW...
