About This Activity

Ride and Tie is a sport combining running, riding, endurance and strategy. Teams consist of two runners and one bike who complete a 8-9 mile trail course by "leapfrogging" one another. That is, one person starts on the bike, the other on foot. The bike travels faster than the runner; after a previously arranged time has passed, the person on the bike gets off, and takes off running. The first runner comes up to the bike and takes off down the trail. When the bike partner reaches the runner, the person on the bike can either get off and exchange with the other partner (a "flying tie") or can ride on and drop the bike up the trail. Partners do this for the entire distance and each team learns to maximize the different members' strengths and weaknesses to their advantage.
