Okay, so you are on this path for five miles at 20 mph, so fifteen minutes. Three minutes into your ride, you pass this guy, and he drafts you for four miles, so twelve minutes. I assume there is some variability in those numbers, but even so, you should be able to avoid him by starting four minutes earlier.

If you do happen to see him, sneeze just before you pass him; sneeze again when you pass him; and then start blowing snot rockets.
