As a cyclist on the flatlands of the prairies, one’s biggest foe is the invariably strong winds. I look for every opportunity I can to draft, even temporarily behind large construction machinery. Cruising along at 27+ km/hr without much pedalling is a welcome relief. The important thing is to signal one’s intentions with the operator, if possible, and stay within a safe distance of the gargantuan construction equipment.
In this particular situation I had to chase down a rather speedy Caterpillar for a considerable distance before I could enjoy the fruits of my labour 🙂
