Bikejoring

Is anyone on here involved with bikejoring? I'm looking for a little more information on the subject.

Engyo - Same concept as bikejoring but the dogs are out in front like a dog sled team in bikejoring. The link that Handsome Ryan gave is what I'm talking about.

AdamDZ, all my life I've been told I'm weird. But my dogs enjoy it and it's the only way to wear out high energy dogs. I enjoy it too. There's nothing quite like feeling like you're being shot from a slingshot!

just where is PETA when you need them!! when I first saw the post I had no idea either. but a few seconds of video I assumed it was either high speed dogwalker, (wow put a Pomerainin on that) or a dog trianer for sledding.

How else would I get up hills if it weren't for the dog pulling? In the trailer she goes, when I get to a hill, she comes out. At the crest of the hill, she goes back in.

So it's kind of like pod racers in Star Wars. Two engines (dogs) up front pulling a pod (bike) on a line. Sounds like a recipe for losing skin.

I saw something like that once... on the MUP.

Crazy.

It certainly has its own risks but I have gained more serious injuries from biking by myself than with my dogs (3 years now). My dogs aren't as fast as the racers though so not as dangerous as you might think.

Just FYI: I don't equal weird with wrong. I'm weird too in many ways. It's just um... this is weird for me, first time ever heard of this, but if you and your dogs have fun doing this then why not? It'll definitely burn their excess energy

That sounds like a fast way to crash. And a thrill till the moment before. Enjoy it.
