Cycling is one of the healthiest modes of transportation. It lets you cover huge distances, explore the amazing world, and it also gives you the exercise to maintain a healthy heart and body. Today, we’ll find that a lot of people are traveling the world and exploring it through bike-packing.
A man named Gil is a cycling enthusiast whose passion is to travel the world by using his trusty bicycle. You may think that it’s a lonely way to travel but Gil does it very differently. During Gil’s bicycle tour in Aguascalientes, Mexico, he brought his trusty companion named Capi with him. Capi is Gil’s dog and Gil considers his loyal dog as his best friend.
Gil adopted Capi while Capi was still a tiny puppy and as soon as Capi learned how to ride on Gil’s bike, they started traveling together. Gil’s bike is equipped with specially designed bike-packing devices that allow him to hook his bags securely on his bike. However, one special modification that Gil did on his bike was to install a plastic box just behind his saddle. The box served as a way for Capi to ride on the bike securely while Gil pedals through the amazing landscapes in Mexico.
Capi proved to be quite a smart dog. Gil didn’t have to spend a lot of time training Capi on how to ride on the box. After Capi learned how to ride he started to jump in and out of the box as he pleases or when Gil commands it. Of course, Gil needed to train himself to ride with his fateful companion at the back of his bike. Gil needed to balance the bike with heavy bags and a moving dog behind him.
Gil plans on traveling on longer distances with his beloved dog in the future. Gil shares everything with Capi and Gil thinks that Capi is the perfect bike-packing companion. During cold nights, Gil and Capi would use each other’s body as warmers by laying next to each other. Here’s an amazing video showing Gil traveling with Capi on one of his long-distance bike-packing tours.
