Default Re: pretty dumb question

If you and a friend are going to a particular destination 5 miles away, and there's only 1 bike between the 2 of you, and you take turns walking and riding the bike, will you get to the destination in the same amount of time, quicker or slower, if you both just walked?

The rules are this:

Whoever starts riding the bike will leave the bike after going ahead 1 mile, drop the bike and walk until the other gets to the bike, and rides the bike past them for a mile, then leaves the bike for the other to ride, and they'll walk again....and so forth.
