Yep, we do bikejoring with our Tams... but I only recommend one dog per bike at a time; two (or more) attached to one bike would probably be a bit dangerous.
Each of our dogs has an x-back harness and we use sled/bungee lines (+ shock absorber) with a Bikejor Arm, which I highly recommend (for keeping the line above/away from the front tire).

Great videos!! :D

Today we met up with the "Klub sportskih i zaprežnih pasa Zagreb" (Zagreb Sleddog Sports Club).
Our Tamaskan (trike) team consisted of Jasper & Vega (father and daughter). It was a lot of fun! :D :D

Lots of Manmat harnesses, I love them, but they are all to small for my boy. We had to get ours from Canadog and it's an XL Long lol!

Here's a video of Bikejoring from today :)



And a picture from today too (excuse my finger)

I am afraid of falling off my bike.. I did once with Sølve because she suddenly stopped while we were biking..
I got pretty hurt and Sølve was scared shitless of the bike for quite a while..

They are awesome, I love the colors... but we have harnesses made by Nordkyn Outfitters, which we imported before it was possible to buy harnesses here in Croatia. :)

I'm right there with you! We took our bikes out with the girls once, I had one and my boyfriend had the other. All was going fine until crazy Naima decided to body check my front tire. Down I went! I decided then that the way to go for me would be on a scooter - I can jump off faster than I could on a bike.

:lol: She's also taken me down during canicross trying to chase a squirrel. Naima will be the death of me.

well not me, but i cant help it..
it was, how to say it, taman :D if you understand :) my mobile application shows ascent/descent about 500m
it is really nice trail, we will ride it again for sure but next time we wont waste our time on finding the right trail, so it will be about 25km ride..
we have 2 more trails on Velebit, one is 36km (ascent 1192m) and other is 76km (ascent 1989m), but those will have to wait some time.. better bicycle for sure..
