    So much fun!!!

    This was one of the highlights of our trip!! We took the south ride, as we wanted the break in between. You ride for about 40 minutes, take a half hour break, then ride back. The entire staff was very welcoming to our dog, and were excited to see him. I brought a blanket as dogs have to sit on the floor of the bike and it is black metal grate, it was a warm day so I'm sure it was hot, plus my dog is a diva and likes to be comfortable. The blanket was comfortable as he was able to sit and lay down during the trip. The noise wasn't too much and he didn't seem to feel the vibration at all. It was a little hot, but we had a cooling bandanna and water available. The break area was really nice, you get to sit on chairs overlooking the water. I only wish there was some shade as it was a pretty hot day and I was hoping my dog could cool off a bit before the return journey. Overall it was defiantly worth it to bring our dog, just make sure to prepare for the weather and bring something for your dog to sit on and be comfortable.

    Bring a blanket/dog bed!

    I wouldn’t bring your big dog or super fluffy pup there are so many places their hair/tail can get caught. However if you have a small/medium dog that isn’t scared of loud noises it’s perfect!! We didn’t know until after that you can bring a small blanket/dog bed to make your pup more comfortable because the floor is like a metal grate. My pup was a little scare so I helped him which worked out but it’s about an hour ride.
