best thing to draft

I like drafting a milk float.

Heavily laden lorries.

They accelerate slowly so you don't have to bust a gut getting up to 30+ they do manage to get to a decent speed, unlike milkfloats or tractors, they don't stop every 2 mins like a bus, and they have a massive wake so you don't have to sit right in the muck.

Yep, Some weekends, I used to weekly commute last summer between E Yorks and Glasgow in a 2CV. Sticking in behind a large truck was definitely the way to go. Sadly, my student daughter has 'pinched' the 2CV so I only see it every so often.

The best thing to draft is a dragster on the Utah flats, like Fred Rompelberg did when he set the fast-boy-on-a-bike speed record.


268 kph!!!!!!!!!!!


Edit: the link doesn't work properly, click "About Fred" and then "World Record".
