Riding with dogs presents a number of challenges, and figuring out the configuration of our pack was one of them. We first tried letting the dogs lead; but after an 1/8 mile, they were off sniffing in the bushes and chasing chipmunks. Then we tried running them between the two bikes. That seemed to keep them running in the right direction.
The dogs’ favorite part seemed to be stopping directly on the trail, adding another obstacle to the trail (for us and other riders). When they weren’t acting as speed bumps, they enjoyed the meeting other dogs on the trail. Tiki seems to want to run off with them and the other riders instead of me. Our ride was cut in half because of our crazy canines, but it was worth it. Life doesn’t get much better than spending the lunch hour in the woods, on bikes, and with our dogs!
