- Dogs banned!
Live and let Live !
who cares if dogs are on the trails ? I dont care that sometimes an over zelous Dad takes his Ankle Biter on the trails, As long as he’s riding his or even hers bike.
We cant clean up after ourselves so why should we expect some one to pick up Bandits ? Its big out there, and its all a bit new, i’m sure the owners will get the message and itll settle down.
Until then cover your brakes, try HOPE’s theyre Modular dontcha know ! 😉Posted 4 years agoKucoMember
I was a CyB the other month and a woman we caught up with had her golden retriever running with her. It was great watching the dog run, it kept looking back to see where she was and bounding along all happy. As soon as it was safe for us to pass she called the dog which went straight back to her and apologised if were held up.Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
I ride wi a dog pretty much every time i decide to ride my hummer, but then again i prefer to avoid the local mtb theme parks despite staying within 30 mins of Kirroughtree/Dalbeattie/Mabie etc. Rik of Drumlanrig fame and previously Mabie used to ride wi his dog “Stan” (rip) all the time and that was great as Stan was so enthusiastic to get out wi us on the bikes, Below is “Toby” looking out the window as we drive to Screel Hill nr to Castle Douglas, i don’t like riding wi other folk and avoid it like the plague but i will ride with a dog every time if possible, for me it just makes the outdoors that bit more enjoyable.
Toby usually leads the way on singletrack despite his short legs and if i wish to pass him i just freewheel so the Hope freehub spins up and he jumps off the track and lets me pass, then joins in behind me.
Here he is on top of Screel hill, egging me on to descend as he can take shortcuts and pass me where i have to stick to the path.
Dogs are great fun to ride with when out on a bike, would you feel the same about a beginner on an mtb holding you up or getting in your way at a trail centre? – if so then perhaps you should head elswhere, i agree about the dog landmines though, no excuse for leaving those lying around.Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber

Are people here really suggesting a DH trail centre is an appropriate place to take a dog? Really?
Personally I thought the OP was talking about all trail centres as he saidPosted 4 years ago
