Running and cycling combo

A Sunday morning run and cycle combo in teams of two or three aiming to 'race' (i.e. a fun race) around the city using the ciclovias. One bike per team will be used as a 'support vehicle' to give team members a rest between running  (i.e. Partner A runs until they become tired while partner B rides the bike, they then swap over).

There will be a time limit to complete the course and your team will get points for taking your photo at a number of locations (e.g. photo at USP = 20 points, photo in Ibirapuera = 5 points). Any team returning late over the time will start to lose points for every 10 minutes they are delayed (e.g. 1 point per minute)

After the 'race' there will be refreshments at Pe no Parque or the Fruteria in Vila Nova.

You can either enter as a team (2-3 people) or i will assign running partners.

 

If you have a bike (of any variety) and intend bringing it on the day please let me know. Alternatively bike hire is available in Ibirapuera or Parque de bicicletas (next to Ibirapuera).

      Age is no barrier as long as you are young at heart!

      Hi Silvia. I agree age is no barrier (I have to!). But I am confused because your profile says you cannot run and this particular event is a running race! Not trying to scare you off; just making sure you understood the description. Cheers

    Can i please have an indication on number for this Sunday - who is coming and who has a bike?

    April 11, 2013

  • Jake O.

    In answer to these question - yes this is still on for the weekend and it is a good session for anyone who can run at least 5km (at whatever pace) and can cycle a bike (very slowly). *****Please can i ask that if you do not intend coming, you remove your RSVP as this will be a nightmare to plan if people don't turn up. Also anyone with a bike please let me know.

      Ok no prob

  • Jake O.

    All unfortunately i have a double booking for this sunday and cannot really do anything about it. I will move this event to a date in April (as i am away for second half of March). If anyone is interested i intend to do a longer run probably along the cycle lane in the afternoon - probably at about 13:30. If interested let me know.

  • Lester D.

    I will be out of the country but would like to do this next time.

  • Flavio De L.

    I got a non speedy mountain bike that I could bring. Jake, what's the game plan? One bikes and the other runs? And then switch?
    Thanks.

    March 7, 2013

  • Jake O.

    Can i ask, of those coming, who has a bike?

    March 6, 2013

    • Liz A.

      I don't have a bike, however i can rent one if I know that it will be needed.

      March 6, 2013

  • Giovanni M.

    Can we rent bikes at the location?

    March 5, 2013

    • Jake O.

      Giovanni, we will only really need one per pair so as long as we have this, renting should not really be necessary (i have two bikes for example).

      March 6, 2013

    • Giovanni M.

      OK, since my bike is back in Holland.

      March 6, 2013

  • Flavio De L.
