    OK so how do you not go splat on a normal bike ?

    ive had a go on a rig pulled by collies but on a bike i would so go splat

    wear a helmet & keep a close eye on the dogs when they are running, look for signs they are possibly going to chase something or slow down , not easy sometimes but their ears go up when theyu see something to chase, they usually run with ears back.

    so how do you adapt your bike – or do you just harness up and attach the lines to the front bit (you know what i mean)

    i was kind of thinking that this could be good fun for Glen and Oban (as they pull anyway but dont tell Bev) BUT would the size diffrence be a problem ?

    i know you can pick up harness from ebay quite cheap – i already bike with the dogs loose but i suppose the pulling the bike they are going to put so much more in – really good fittening exercise

    I use a piece of thick rope tied to bike frame below headstock so you don’t get pulled to one side with handlebars when dogs go to one side. Then attach a metal carabiner to a purpose made shock absorber. I got my shock absorber from a sleddog person  who makes them. Then attach a 1-dog or 2-dog line to the shock absorber, then clips on lines attach to the back of the dogs harnesses . You can run dogs with tracking harnesses but make sure they are padded well or as i prefer to use x-back harnesses. Best to use a neck line to keep dogs attached together also. I also often use this antenna to keep lines off front wheel.

    Here is a pic of the setr up of equipment , sorry for quality of pic, this was taken when i used a bike inner tube as a shock absorber but i use the custom made one now, much better

    Make sure your dogs are used to the harnesses b4 trying to run them in them.  😉

    Not technical once you have  got used to putting it together, only takes me 5 mins only to get bike ready for a run, I put it on here like that to show the safe way to run the dogs with bike at front or you could use the spriinger at side of bike. ;)All looks confusing but not really.
