Drafting another bike rider is one of the features of cycling that makes it so interesting. By sitting behind other cyclists and benefiting from their slipstream you can save huge amounts of effort - so you can go just as fast as them for less effort. It's most noticeable at high speeds in sprints, crosswinds, and on the track. But what about when you're climbing? In this video, Ollie and Hank try to answer the question: is it worth drafting another cyclist on a climb?
