Thanks for the great video.

Sort of made me a bit sad though. When we moved to a unit complex in town a year ago, we had to find another home for our dog. I sure miss that old fella.

There are compensations however as now I get to ride once a week with my grandaughters...

That is very cool, how long did it take you to train him or did he just do it naturally?

Fabulous! Reminds me of my old dog Spike, who used to cross country ski with us years ago. Love the music too!

that is awesome.... never have to worry about your partner bailing on you! much more fun to ride with a partner! suffering in company is better than suffering alone!! I seem to always push myself to hard when riding alone...

Thanks everyone.

I have walked Bud on the bike since he was a pup, when we are on the streets I just hang the leash over the bars. It's a great way to get him some real exercise at his pace.

I know I'd have about 10 crashes per ride if I tried "walking" my dog on a bike. I'd love to do it though!
