Cycling with your Best Friend

August 4, 2014


I’ve tried cycling with dogs before – don’t go there! Although I’ve seen it done successfully, your little pal running beside the bike on a lead is a recipe-for-disaster in my book. What if you could take the pooch ON YOUR BICYCLE?

BuddyRider is a kind of “child-seat” for your bike, specially designed for transporting that hairy four-legged child in your life in safety and comfort.

Local cyclist Jason Shaw thought it was such a great idea he’s started a business importing and selling the BuddyRider throughout Australasia.

Much like the child-carriers so popular in Japan and Europe, your pride & joy is sitting right there in front of you enjoying the same views. They’re not out-of-sight on the carrier behind, getting up to mischief .


Tempted as I am to purchase one of these for my own “buddy” Rex, I’m not sure the good folks of Mairangi Bay are ready for sharing the footpath with a 70kg Komodo Dragon.

Anyway, I’m currently trying to sell Jason an ad over on the side column there, so if you buy one of these pooch-pods make sure you tell them Bike Friendly North Shore sent ya. Woof!
