I am competing in my first adventure race in a couple of weeks. It includes trail riding, trail running, canoeing, a bike & tie, and a mystery event. I can't find anyone who knows what a bike & tie is. Can anyone help me out? Also, any help on things to do to prepare would be greatly appreciated.
Comes from ride and tie, which is a race involving teams of two people and one horse. One person starts out riding the horse, gets to a certain point, ties up the horse and starts running. Meanwhile the other person starts out running, gets to the tied-up horse and rides to the next tie-up point. They switch off until the end of the race. The tie-up points are pre-determined.
I assume a bike and tie replaces the horse with a bike. You might want to confirm that it is not biking and horseback riding, as such an event is no place to learn to ride a horse.
