I used to bicycle with my 2 dogs, a black lab and a golden retriever Smile We would bicycle to the field, and then I let them run. There were usually other dogs in the field, so that was a bonus. But yes, please, remember that the dog attached to you while biking is a living creature, not a mechanical appendage.

Dr Sarah, is it advisable to give your dog a small amount of water part way through a long bike ride?

Thanks for the tips! I love to bike with my dog(s), and am lucky to live very close to Acadia National Park which has miles and miles of carriage paths which are great for mountain biking with canine companions.
