I keep telling Adam that Jasmine is my new biking buddy and that she'll go on some weekend bike trips with me this year. He didn't believe that I would ever take her on any real bike rides though.
Yesterday, after walking Jack and taking Bear on a shorter (2.5 mile) ride, we drove out to the bike path in Boise out to Lucky Peak Dam. I showed it to the Mendozas when they were out here. We started 5 miles from where the bike trail ends so we could do 10 miles.
It was super cold out, 32 degrees so I was bundled in lots of clothes. I left my biking shoes at home and wore my hiking boots. That was much warmer for my toes. I hooked Jasmines trailer up to the bike and off we went. I let Jasmine do far more running than I planned on. It was our first ride with the trailer though and I didn't want her to hate it because she had to spend too much time in it. I only towed her 3-4 miles throughout the entire ride. She kept surprising me with all the energy she had!
There were some mishaps. She jumped out of the trailer while I was moving. I now close the front screen. She pulled us over trying to get to a beagle. It's very odd for her to react to another dog like that. I don't know what got into her. Other than those two things though, I really had a good time. And I know Jasmine did too. She slept on the drive home and except for eating dinner, she slept pretty much all evening as well.
