Assuming the rain does not prevent the Tuesday Canal ride, it will be windy. I have contacted Grand Poobah and he will be at the parking lot at 5:30 to give a brief seminar on the special techniques for drafting in winds of 25mph+. Included in the series of tips are these topics:
1. Barging Into the Draft Line Wherever You Damn Well Please.
2. Riding In the Narrow Strip of Junk to the Right of Asphalt & Left of Grass.
3. Peloton Slowing Techniques
a. "Neutral Zone"
b. ""Is that a Flat"
c. "I Dropped My Water Bottle"
d. "Julia (substitute your significant other) is Calling"
4. Folding your Body Around the Bike Frame.
