Go Bikejoring With Your Dog
Special Interest: Biking
Bikejoring is very different from biking with your dog and a more common sport for fall or winter. The main difference is that your dog actually runs in front of you on your bike and pulls you forward while you ride. We suggest that you read a few articles about bikejoring before going out with your dog. It’s also a great idea to go out with someone who can give you hands-on pointers for you and your dog(s).
Submit a picture or video of your dog with your bike. Where did you go bikejoring? Was this your first time bikejoring with your dog? Do you have any tips for anyone else new to bikejoring?
