Win A Dream Trike
At last, a ride worthy of your furry co-pilot.
Help support a service dog, and get a chance to win this "Kanine Kruiser."

How does one describe the very cool tricycle created by Dublin Dog in Charlotte, N.C.? If we were in a pitch meeting with a movie producer we’d say it’s Breaking Away meets Easy Rider meets Benji—a wicked-cool pair of wheels with a dog-friendly sidecar that, with a donation to a good cause and some luck, can be yours.

Here’s the back story: The folks at Dublin Dog do more than create rockin’ canine hardware (leashes, collars, etc.). They also run a foundation to “foster the therapeutic and service roles of dogs in the development, support and inspiration they provide their human companions.” Putting two and two together, they decided to raffle this aquamarine beauty with the neon flames to raise $20,000. That money will pay for training, food and medical bills for a service dog for his or her lifetime. And that dog will help Terry, a Winston-Salem resident with Cerebral Palsy, maintain her mobility and independence.

On July 4, the Dublin Dog Dream Bike and Sidecar will be pedaled 400 miles in the 2009 Let Freedom Bark Ride, a charity ride from Charlotte to Washington, D.C.—where the winner of the raffle will be announced. Learn more about the Foundation and buy your tickets here.
