This is why I don't race or ride in big groups, and just do my really long rides by myself--so I don't have to worry about crap like that. I just go fast when I want to and slower when I don't. Speed and efficiency kind of take care of themselves, and I'm too old (58) to worry about some platonic ideal ride. I rode 157 miles in exactly 10 hours of riding time last Saturday, and I rode slower when there was stuff to look at, and faster when there wasn't.

Not knocking anyone for wanting this version of "efficiency", just giving you the perspective of a very active rider who doesn't bother with it.
