A Sky clad rider drafted me for over 3 miles the other day but i didnt know the dude i found it quite annoying really.Word of warning, don't just draft anybody. Only draft someone who you trust and who knows you are drafting them, this is a must so that they can ensure not to do anything sudden or unpredictable. Also ensure that you have some communication system (shouting or hand gestures) for obstacles and DO NOT half wheel.
Is this a Spinal Tap tribute? I assume you mean 1-2'?1) Generally people will draft each other 1-2" apart

I was once drafted on my folder, late at night, on cs3, in the rain, at about 12mph. The guy was so close I couldn't see him over my shoulder or in my mirror. It was very dangerous as people step out all the time so emergency stops are common and with heavy rain, we couldn't communicate. He was a stranger, and I assumed he was waiting to pass me. It was only later I realised he must have been drafting.
I tried to learn drafting for the first time on Sunday. She slowed, I pedalled fast to catch up, got into her draft and stopped pedalling then had to brake, she started pulling, and (accidentally) dropped me. Repeat. It's a skill to learn.
