Get lost in the endurance sport of Bikejoring by explaining how it works, what gear you need, and where you can go to get lost racing it.
Bikejoring is an endurance sport made from the perfect blend of mountain biking and dog handling. Placed together into one grand event, this sport has all the feel of an Iditarod sled race, but without the need for snow.
An offshoot of sledding, bikejoring (or bikejor) is an endurance sport that attaches a pair of sled dogs (or team) to a mountain bike via a towline. The dog team then pulls the mountain bike rider (or driver) over a soft trail or dirt road course either during a time trial or paired heats. The catch is that the mountain bike has no chain.
All the power comes from the dogs along a straightaway with the fastest dog team and rider over three runs wins. Most courses avoid paved or gravel roads to keep from injuring the dog paws Since the dogs have to remain in front of the mountain bike at all times, any driver can be beaten by a team with more control.
