This invention entails use of light yet powerful lower body exoskeletons, unpacked from backpacks, to connect two buddies back-to-back for mutual bounding down the blacktop.
At each joint (ankle, knee and hip) is a compact spring to lessen the compression shock upon ground contact and increase the
extension power on the bound while easing the load of a big buddy bonded to the back.
To use, unfold the buddy bounder from the backpack, bind to the feet and connect with the buddy's body so one person is right side up and the other is wrong side up, behind.
Proceed after some practice to boing in great bounds at speeds of up to 30.24 kph (18.9 mph), astounding friends, relatives and coworkers while enjoying yourselves immensely.

||I look at that sketch and just think, "don't break wind..." but that's just me being childish.
||Croissant just for the imagery. I'm not sure I'd want to try it (I'd probably be sick), but I'd pay to watch someone do it down a mountain.
||Not for those with bad backs.
||I think you are trying to invent ways for morons to remove themselves from the breeding pool.
||Mmmm...fond memories of skinny-dipping in the breeding pool.
