The Circle City Bicycles blog contains info on bicycles, cycling events, pro racing, bicycle touring, and just about anything else cycling related. Since our bike shop is located in Indianapolis, we focus on biking in the Midwest, but cycling fans anywhere in the world should find this blog interesting. We try to post daily Monday through Friday, but we occasionally miss a day. Each Friday we try to have an interesting bicycle related photo.
Who needs snow for dogsledding? (Photo courtesy of Mushing magazine)
This video comes from Canberra, the capital of Australia. They don't get much snow there, so they often have to improvise if they want to have dogsled races. For their sleds, they appear to use modified bicycles, tricycles, quadcycles and scooters for sleds. It amazes me how fast those dogs can go when they are pulling these things. The dogs seem to really like it. They appear very excited when at the start of the race - Like my dog is when it's time to go for a walk. I don't know if they have different classes, but some of the contestants have only one dog while others have three.
