Cycling isn't just something humans can enjoy - pets like to get in on the act, too! There's a surprising number of cyclists that like to take their furry friends with them on the bike - here are just a few...

Joshua Sivarajah, 34, cycled 2,500 miles around the UK with his pet dog, Nero.


Thomas Vles transported cats Cheesy and Mushi 300 miles from Amstardam at London to launch 'Poopy Cat'. It's ok, we explained it all here...


Rachel Atherton's trail dog Angus Atheron goes everywhere with her.

Meet Didga, whose owner is a professional cat trainer - he likes to ride around in the basket, or on the shoulders - anywhere really (as long as he doesn't have to pedal)

cycling dog

Kira Purlyte have ridden 6,000 of 10,000 miles along the Pan-American Highway with her partner, Sven, and most importantly, her dog Tulku.

Marianne Vos travels to races with her cat, Sjekki - here he is in action...


Igel and Paola Zimmermann travelled for eleven years with their dogs, Rambo and Caramba. You can see their story here (but you might need Google Translate to help you).

There are more adorable pictures of him here...


MJ rides around Philadelphia on Rudi's shoulders, like, all the time... (or maybe only for the camera)...

Sadly Joey passed away in 2009 but there's an exceptional collection of pictures from their journey here...
