Yes. I don't know where the myth of the super-fixed rider dropping roadies like flies comes from.

Probably dudes who happen to breeze past a guy on a roadbike doing 15-18mph. Real serious roadies can maintain 18-25 mph for long stretches of time with minimum effort compared to a cyclist who rides fixed gear for commutes and recreation. Don't get me wrong -fixed gears are awesome for a lot of reasons.

But trying to group ride in a fast peloton is not the fixed gear bicycle's strong suit.
