Intro to Bikejor: Week 1

Are you a total bike novice? Have you always wanted to try biking with your dog but feel clueless as to where to start?

Do you worry about even having to pump up your tyres? Are you worried about coming off your bike, never mind attaching a dog?!

If you’ve answered yes to any of these then this is the session for you.

We’ll take you through absolute back to basics bike skills in a completely non judgemental environment. We’ll be covering:

– Basic bike terminology, what kind of bike you need for the trails

– How to pump up your tyres and determine what is the correct tyre pressure

– Picking good terrain for you and your dog

– Gears! They’re not as scary as you think!

– Basic riding position and safe riding

– Cornering

– How to get your dog comfortable around your bike

– What kit you need to get started with bikejor

*THIS FIRST SESSION IS NO DOGS*

We will run follow up sessions where the dogs will be able to take part but for now, lets get you safely out on the trails without being pulled!

Will last approx 1.5 hours. Time for coffee and cake in Eglinton’s cafe afterwards too.

    I've been coming to Cani-Fit for about 6 years now with my little small but mighty Maisie. We love canicross, bikejor, agility and also do a bit of mountain biking, swimming, paddleboarding and just generally adventure together! We are looking forward to helping those that are a bit less confident get into biking with their dogs.
