My Fearless Companion
A German Shepherd Mountain Biker
Alaz rules. He’s my German Shepherd Dog and he loves the woods. We ride together about once every other week. He hammers single track. Stays right by my rear wheel. And on command, he will haul ass down the trail ahead of me.
If you’ve ever ridden with a dog ahead of you like this, you know the feeling is cool. When I give him the command to run in front of me, I chase him. He is trucking full speed and all I can see are his hind quarters compressing and extending. It’s like I am part of the pack. I could never keep up on foot, but the bike allows me to. For those that know, it’s one of the coolest feelings in the world.
Below are two photos we took on a ride this past Sunday in Patapsco State Park that I cannot stop thinking about or looking at. I love this dog. He’s my MTB pal.
