I won't ask why you want to drift, but I can offer a few suggestions. Massive amounts of tire pressure in balding, cheap tires that are made from a harder compound will give you the best results. Your speed decreases because drifting creates friction, which is mechanically the same as using your brakes.

Your front wheel should be rolling in the direction you intend to go, while your back wheel slides sideways. Practice on wet grass until you get caught, then try loose dirt.

Since Ex declined, I'm going to.

Why the hell do you want to drift on a bicycle?
