Wanna Go for a Ride? Shimano Unleashes “A Dog’s Tale” – Video

We all love trails. That’s a given. Some of us love them more than others, but anyone who will endure the pains of climbing and crashing, even if just rarely, does so because they have some level of passion for the sport. But even the most dedicated lifer you’ll ever meet out there on the trail could never match the purity of how dogs love trails. You can see it in their eyes, in how they get when they recognize the trailhead, how they look back and seem to laugh at you as you struggle up the climbs. If you ever feel like your love for the trails is breaking under the weight of life and responsibility, there’s no better reminder of how simple things can be than watching a dog, mouth agape, tongue akimbo, charge a section with the natural skill we only dream we had. So Shimano put together a nine-minute montage of nothing but. Wanna go for a ride!?
