A Dog’s Tale [Video]

The joys of mountain biking, through the eyes of the trail dog.

From Shimano:

Raven is a 13-year-old retired trail dog who lives a stone’s throw from the Ring Creek Trailhead in Squamish, British Columbia. Raven has spent countless days frolicking on loamy singletrack beneath towering spruces, but old age has slowed her down. Now, Raven happily lies in the driveway, watching dog after dog, and their human, head for the hills. 

The film takes us from Raven’s driveway memories in British Columbia to Utah, to South Africa, and back again, meeting some of the feistiest, four-legged trail personalities along the way. They all enjoy the mountain bike world in their own way, whether it’s hitting jump lines, lapping through the loam, or setting out to build new trail.
