Taking the dog for her run

I sometimes I vary our walking routine with a fast ride around the neighborhood. She’s running further, and going faster overall, so I think she’s getting back in shape after the sedentary summer. We actually get out more in winter.

I’m only holding the leash this way for the picture.

The leash-end is usually in my right hand, tight around the back of the stem, and held again in my left hand against the bars. There’s not enough slack for her to get ahead of the bike, it’s pretty stable against jerks and lunges, and I can reel it in a bit to make passing drivers more comfortable.

It’s hard to get a picture of the bike-leash-hands setup without an assistant.
