Don't forget your dog when heading out for an
Many dog owners don’t think about to take their dogs
exploring with them, however there are plenty of dog-friendly opportunities available, so plan something unique with your 4 legged friend.
If you are thinking about taking your dog with you, remember to choose a
trip that won't be too strenuous for them or dangerous. If your dog is older, has mobility issues or an injury,
a short walk on the beach would be an ideal adventure. If your dog is
young, active and full energy, a hiking trip or wild swimming adventure may be more there speed.
You don't even need to take time off of work to go adventuring with your dog if you can't afford to. THese dog-friendly
trips can be done on weekends or days off during the week. Just make
sure you've prepared your dog to endure the conditions, hot or cold, and always carry plenty of water and bowl.
The one absolutely unselfish friend that you can have….the one that
never deserts you and the one that never proves ungrateful or
treacherous is your dog. They guard you while you sleep as if you were a
prince. When all other friends desert they remain.
Feel the magic in the air and the power in the breeze, feel the energy
from the plants and trees, let yourself be surrounded by nature at it’s
best and take a moment. Nature does not hurry, yet everything is
accomplished in time.
To uncover your true potential you must first find your own limits and
then you have to have the courage to blow past them. Wheather it’s in
the gym, on your bike or out running, always push your limits or you
will never truly know your limits.
often say ‘A picture is worth a thousand words.’ I believe the original
quote was actually ‘A picture is worth ten thousand words’ as stated by Fred R. Barnard, of Printers’ Ink, 10 March 1927.
What is bikepacking?
Bikepacking involves taking minimalist camping kit (as
little as possible) which is then packed into bags that are strapped to your bike
frame, bars, forks, seatpost – anywhere you can!
The aim is to keep your
bike as light and manoeuvrable as possible, usually with off-road riding
in mind. It can be tricky choosing the right kit to take, but weight and less of it is the name of the game, which in turn will lead to a better ride.
