Last night on TV I saw a mountain biker towing another mountain biker, then today I saw 2 people riding, one being towed using some sort of rope. Are they using this for training, or are they helping out the weaker rider?
What kind of rope would be best for this? I'm thinking that on longer flat trail rides I could tow my kids at their pace to help lighten the load for them, especially on up hills.
Where would I be best to attach the rope? I'm not interested in one of the bars that attach to my bike as my kids are pretty good riders, however on long ride it would be nice to attach a rope and keep on climbing!
I had never thought of it before until I saw the two guys doing it today! Am I crazy? Did his pedal fall off and they were using it only in an emergency?
