Cycle Dog

Megan is a cyclist in Texas. She likes guns, Panda bears, polar bears, fixed gear bikes, and short fenders. This is her dog, Pie.

he loves to trot

Here are a couple more adorable dog with bike photos.


Some might accuse me of pandering to those who hanker for cute pet photos, but really I’m just following industry trends. Sickenly cute pet photos is almost the definition of a succcessful blog, and besides I’m just following CycleDog’s lead, here. That’s the ticket.

    Man, I hate to say this and risk hacking off those of you who ride with your dogs on a leash — but I hate to meet up with people doing this. It's bad enough trying to get by pedestrians with their dogs on retractable leashes. You may think your dog is always going to be predictable … but it isn't and someone is going to end up getting hurt.

    My feeling, anyway.

    …warren t…it's like ice skating on kids nite…you plan your pass to no avail cuz nothing could be more unpredictable than dogs or kids…while there is a certain beauty to that aspect of life, it can be totally dangerous…

    …ps: not many dogs ice skate (anymore)…

    warren t,
    I understand your comment. I use a sprung harness device that keeps my dog quite close to my bike and the leash isn't taking any of his pressure.This keeps him close and secure without interfering with my ability to control the bike. I mostly ride in my neighborhood at night, and it's the perfect thing to burn off his excess engergy. Even when my medium sized dog does something erratic, our forward momentum is enough to minimize it, and keep us moving in the right direction.

    The main thing that I see as a risk, is unleashed or stray dogs running up to us as we cruise the neighborhood. I have had to deal with it several times, and am always on the look out.

    Additionally, if I ever do go on the bike path, I pull over when ever I am approached from behind or pass someone from the opposite direction. It's a courtesy that is much apprecitated.

    I'm a bad, bad man. I apologize for leading you so far astray down this blind alley filled with…damn! What did I step in?

    Here are my two Fritz – although 3 weeks after the photo was taken they go to big to both fit in the same basket.
