Was on a busy road when a landscaping truck with a HUGE trailer slowly started passing me... The trailer was the size of a garage door.. So I peddled hard drafting and kept it up for a mile before it started pulling away...looked down.. 27 mph... lol

Forgot to shift to the largest chainring... Might have gotten to 30 mph...

I my area the bikes draft me, I'll even back off after dropping one - if they really want my wheel they will make the short sprint, then I creep them back up to 28 - 30. Yes it takes a strong rider to hold that draft, we have lots. We also have city busses that can make a nice tunnel, warm stinky (nat gas) on a 'winter' day, these are my memories. Now to upgrade those brakes...
