"Spoken Contract" posted the contents of his bike bag. Spoken gets around by bike in Boston, has a girlfriend named Emily and a roommate named Lauren.
This isn't Emily or Lauren, as far as I know, but it fits the theme of another category of posts I'll link to, which is pets and bikes. Click on the photo for details.
Remember, I will link to you if I find your bike bag post, a disgustingly cute photo of your pet and a bicycle, or a cute bike haiku. The best way to get my attention is to link to Cyclelicious (and make sure you ping Technorati). You can also just drop me a note.
She tells me they're too big for the basket now. Enjoy 'em while they're young!
I don't remember if I mentioned this or not yet, but I have a new link bait rule: Post a picture of your cute pet on or around the bike, link back to Cyclelicious and ensure I find it and I'll post a link back to your website or blog. You can see the other bicycle pet posts by clicking on the "pets" label below.
By Yokota FritzMegan is a cyclist in Texas. She likes guns, Panda bears, polar bears, fixed gear bikes, and short fenders. This is her dog, Pie.
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.

Bicycle helmet for dogs
I can just see the motorcycle going around the turn and the dog slowly slipping off the seat...
Budapest rocks...love that city and the Danube is a playground for those who enjoy life. Carfree in the Pest means more than just bikes. Jack
Dog powered trike
If they beat the dog a little, it might actually run hard enough so they don't need to pedal!
Bicycle bag inventory
I like my amateur status. ;)
..."pound control to major tom"...
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Dogs and the SLUT
I think this is a good rule.
Thanks for the link Fritz, and they are adorable!
They are "Staffyons" (brother and sister). Staffordshire Bull terriers cross with Pappilon. They haver turned out like miniature Staffy's. Their names are Bonnie and Clyde.
Hee hee, perfect names for them!
Biking with my dog everyday is one of the things I look forward to. Here is a blog post with a video link to us biking together. http://126.96.36.199/wordpress/?p=322
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.This post has been removed by the author.
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. http://annejovi.blogspot.com/2007/10/slutting-around-dogs-get-mobile.html
