    Urban mushing is fun.  When the dogs pulling on your bike or scooter aren’t well-trained, though, that could lead to a whole lot of problems.  You can’t exactly lead them since they’re in front.  If they want to run right over a cliff, then that’s exactly where they’ll go.  With you falling to your death along with them, of course. Bend, Oregon’s Mark Schuette knew those risks and had just the answer for it: rider-led, dog-powered rides.  Instead of having [...]
