I want to ride my bicycle,
I want to ride it where I like!"
(Thank you to Queen for those brilliant and insightful lyrics.)
Last year I learned how to ride a bicycle, and it is now one of my favorite things to do! We ride out to the DP (Dog Park) or over to Grandma and Grandapa’s house. Sometimes we even ride along the ocean! Since basket riding (as I like to call it) is such a very fun thing to do, I will teach you all how to do it.
Step One: Make sure your Mommy has a bike. After you have made sure of that, put your basket right on the front where you can have the best view:
Step Two: When you get in your basket, make sure you are properly strapped in, because you do not want to fall out. See the red strap that goes through my harness?
When I am riding my bike I get so excited that sometimes I like to sit up very tall and put my paws over the front edge of the basket. This is okay, because remember, I am strapped in.
Step Three: Make sure you go to places where you can see all sorts of interesting things, like these geese:
Step Four: The Dismount: This picture was taken after a very windy bike ride along the ocean in
This completes our lesson in how to ride a bike. I hope you have enjoyed it. You are now ready to try it yourself!!! See you on the trails!
Bye for now,
Pee-ess: if you are very large, like, say, Randi, you might need a much bigger basket. :)
