What to Pack for a Bike Tour with Your Dog + #bikewithyourdogday Giveaway!

After more than a year of cycle touring with our dog, we’ve come to rely on several essential items that we use regularly for Sora. The infographic below should help as you put together your packing list the next time you head out on a bike tour with your dog. 


What to Pack for a Bike Tour with Your Dog

Bike with Your Dog Day Giveaway!

What is Bike with Your Dog Day?

Bike with Your Dog Day aims to highlight the possibility of taking dogs along on your two-wheeled adventures. No need to plan an international jaunt, stay local and head out for an excursion together to test the waters. Take them to the park, to a friend’s house, or out for a weekend adventure. We just want to see you bike with your dog. 

Bike with Your Dog Day

What:  Leave no dog behind on your biking adventures. Take your dog along on your next bike ride. 

When: Sunday, July 10, 2016

Where: Everywhere! While the contest is only open to US and Canadian residents, we still want to see you bike with your dog. Please use the hashtag #bikewithyourdogday to show us how you do.

How: Easy. Bike with your dog. Take your pup on your next two-wheeled outing. 

Now, before you get out and buy anything for your upcoming tour, wait to see whether you’ve won our Bike with Your Dog Day contest!

We are so excited to be partnering with Kurgo, Burley Design, Fedwell Pet Foods, and GoPro for this giveaway. Since we have so many great prizes to bestow unto you that we’re breaking our contest up over several days and two platforms. 

Confused? I shall explain. 

Starting today, you can enter to win our Ultimate Bike with Your Dog Day Touring Package, which includes a Burley Tail Wagon, essential adventure dog gear from Kurgo like the Wander Loft Dog Bed, Zippy Bowl, Travel Food Bag, and Running Belt + Spring Leash (all shown above), and healthy, wholesome pet food from Fedwell. 

Simply follow click on this link and enter any of the six ways. (Instagram won’t allow us to ask you to like accounts, so we’re asking you to do that here, rather than the “visit” described in the Gleam instructions.) In the comments, tell us where you and your pup will go on your biking adventure. We’re looking for descriptive stories here, folks!

We’ll pick a winner on July 11.

Annnnnnnd, that’s not all!

Starting on 8 July, head on over to @besomedoggy on Instagram, where we will host more giveaways from Fedwell Pet Foods and a GoPro SessionFetch Mount, and their brand new  Seat Mount and Pro Handlebar and Seat Post Mount! We’ll provide instructions on how to enter each day at @besomedoggy, so be sure to follow their account to stay updated. 

On July 10, celebrate Bike with Your Dog Day by tagging your photos #bikewithyourdogday and we’ll repost our favorites! 

Congratulations to the following #bikewithyourdogday winners:
