Bike Tow System

In AR teams are only as fast as their slowest member.  Teams that want to be competitive will almost always have towing as a big part of their game plan.  On foot this can often be improvised - a piece of rope, extra strap, even a couple of leg warmers tied together can suffice to keep the team together and moving at the same pace.  But for biking, it can be nice to have something more sophisticated that doesn't get in the way when it isn't in use but is ready to go at a moments notice.  There are many types of tow systems out there - the following video shows the type i use when i race.

ll good - but you can lose the bike tube reinforcement (just get strong zip ties) the zips won't break, and if they do it means there was too much force somewhere and you will be happy to not be attached anymore.

Also, I like to pull the whole leash out and cut most of it off (except the last few feet) and tie it to the bungee (cut one bungee hook off too). This saves weight and keeps the leash from reeling out too much cord.
