What do you mean by 'taking a pull?'....Is that anything like taking a puff?

If you have to ask, you were definitely one of the hangers-on. "Taking a pull" means rotating to the front of the paceline to share the work. (Please don't make me sigh heavily by asking what a "paceline" is....)

Oh - thanks.  I get it.  A paceline is like a time trial, right?  You have to pull harder because it's just you and the clock.  I see...thanks.

Really enjoyed Eric's ride in HoCo on Saturday, however, when we crossed RT-108 on RT-216 going West I encouraged the A group of half-dozen to do a TTT (team time trial) paceline.  About the time it caught on and I had almost roatated back towards the front we were in a pretty smooth circle, something weird and never explained happened and the guy in front of me locks up the brakes and I barely missed piling into him, same behind me.  We were all perplexed, it was never explained the abrupt change in pace and it was the end of close riding for the rest of the day.  Ya gotta know those who you ride close with.  I made it into 50 miles and got to 17 average for the first time in a while so condition and recovery is improving.  Ciao, Stuart

My rule for following a strange wheel - if the legs are shaved, then they are probably ok. If there is a bike related tattoo on the calf, then it's a guaranteed smooth ride.

Works most of the time.

Glad to see you're recovering!

Since when do you get to follow a strange wheel on that thing you ride?
And bike related tattoo might just be the urban hipster lost in the stix...
...Or are you referring to a Cat5 grease mark?

Uh.... no... actually it's the OPPOSITE of a time trial. In a paceline, people share the work. In a time trial no drafting is allowed.
