Same goes for drafting semi trucks.
Summer of '65 a friend and I took a bicycle trip from the Rochester, NY area to Niagara Falls. His Dad was our parental contact. We spent a couple days in Canada then came back and returned toward home using NY Rte 31 which was a truck route. Yup - we drafted a semi! For about 10 miles we were inside that cone of suction and tooting along at 60 or so! What a rush!
Looking back at that now, I would kick my kids butt all over if he tried it!
