“Drafting” and my career path

Originally appeared on spirituality.com

It was an especially hot and overcast summer day for a 25-mile bike ride. During a water break, a more experienced cycling friend asked me, “Have you ever heard of drafting?”

I replied that I’d heard of it in connection with drawing up architectural plans, but never in relation to cycling. So he explained to me that drafting is a technique where cyclists will tuck in behind the back wheel of the rider ahead of them. He went on to say that drafting enables a pack of riders to travel for longer distances at faster speeds because they face less wind resistance.

We'd love to hear from you!
