A ratchet strap would likely give you that option, as well as being able to tie it round a tree and ratchet the bike around.
Both good ideas. I made myself a strap with a hook on the end when I was learning to put my bike on the centerstand, and I imagine that this will eventuallget used to pull the bike around. But I also like the idea of a ratchet strap - even a cheap 500# one from Home Depot could be the difference between calling for help and getting the bike onto the road yuorself. Great idea!
