Hi there! Thanks for checking out our website. My name is Bixby and I’m a 5 year old rescue dog from Texas. Along with my Human “Mike” and our rubber safety chicken “Chicken Charlie”, we have emBARKed on an epic adventure bicycling around the country and raising awareness of the importance of pet adoption and supporting your local animal shelters.
Originally from Austin, I soon found my human Mike living and working there and I knew I had to take care of this guy. Little did I know what I was in for. Three years ago, Mike decided to show me the country. We loaded into his pickup truck and set out to see the sights.
We toured across the country visiting small towns and national parks till one day we landed in the Terlingua Ghost Town in the shadows of Big Bend National Park. While there we befriended The Coyote Brothers that were in the process of a 2 year bicycle journey across the country and making a documentary. Their stories apparently made an impression for we eventually got ourselves a Yuba Mundo cargo bike, stuck my bed on the back, grabbed our trusty rubber safety chicken and told my human that “dreams are like sticks…you just have to chase them!”
We have now pedaled over 8,000 miles through 31 states and are having the adventure of a lifetime and we’re just getting started! Along the way we are exploring our beautiful country, meeting lots of people and helping to unite other 4 legged friends with their humans to take care of by visiting local animal rescues and shelters and highlighting those furry little friends that are looking for homes. So look out and you may just see us pedaling through your town. If you do see us, stop and say hi. If you take a picture of us, post it to our Facebook page below.
Thanks a Ruff -Bixby and Mike
