2 Bikes, 8 Panniers, a trailer….and a Puppy?




Yes, a little Springer Spaniel has been added to the adventure. We picked up Bodhi at 8 weeks old and have been gearing him up for a life of bikes, trails and the great outdoors ever since.

We purchased a Doggyride bike trailer weeks before we even brought Bodhi home, crossing our fingers that the little guy would love bike touring as much as us! We were encouraged by blogs such as cyclinggypsies, ofpeadalsandpaws and worldsbetweenlines; these people have cycled hundreds, even thousands of kilometres with their four legged pals (so we knew we weren’t crazy!).

And now 5 months old, tipping the scales at 30lbs, Bodhi has done day long rides in Idaho, an overnighter in Oregon and spends an hour travelling in his trailer almost everyday. In the coming months we’ll post about the triumphs and challenges of touring with a dog, as well as a review of the Doggyride, as we prep for a full week long cycle tour with our Bodhi on the Olympic Peninsula.

    I look forward to hearing more about this travelling dog and people, how does she /he behave round farm animals? wildlife? (bears???) wiht love, marion x

    • Wonderful to hear from you Marion! So far he looks at the farm animals in awe, hasn’t seen too much wildlife and loves to chase birds and squirrels. We’ve stuck to well used trails and roads so far so the potential to see anything menacing (ie: bears) has been minimal. Hope you re doing well, lots of love to you and family
