Bike Touring With Kids
Bike Touring With Dogs
- Challenge 1: Conditions and paying attention to safety for your dog
- Challenge 2: Weight
- Challenge 3: Reduced mileage
- Challenge 4: Altered setup – on bike vs. trailer vs. cargo bike
- Great Q&A
- Great FAQs
- A good follow… Jasmine Reese going around the world with Fiji
And remember… some dogs hate biking.
Inflatable loungers (aka beach beds) for bike touring?
- About 2 lbs (not that light). Folds up smaller than most camping pads.
- Quick inflation.
- Don’t know… seems like an interesting idea. Paired with a tarp or mosquito netting and it has some possibilities.
- Prices range 30-200, depending on where you look.
Yet another battery…

And… Another 5-star iTunes review from Johnny K!
A big thank you to all of the monthly supporters of the show! If you like what you hear, you can help me keep the show listener-supported while expanding the offerings (like the new C&O online guide!). A buck, two bucks or even 5 helps with the costs of hosting the podcast and the website, plus the Pedalshift Society allows me to do cool new things I’ll be rolling out in future shows. Check it out and join at pedalshift.net/society.
If you’re interested in one-shot support, consider something over at Pedalshift Plus and get something cool in return! If the C&O talk is interesting, consider Pedalshift Tour Journals Vol. 1 my epic Pacific Coast tour with multiple daily podcasts chronicling my ride in 2014. You can get that at Pedalshift Plus. On to the Society!

The Pedalshift Project theme is America courtesy of Jason Kent off his self-titled solo album. Check out his band Sunfields‘ album, Habitat, wherever cool music resides. I heard Jason’s new album in January and it is AWESOME. More info when that drops!
