Adventures with Lumi

The holidays are here and so is everything that comes with it, the rich food, having a few more drinks than usual, exchanging gifts, sparkly lights, and indulging in Christmas TV. Who doesn’t love this time of year! More importantly, it’s a time of year for family, friends and getting outside together. If it is a white Christmas then that is the icing on the cake!

Last December my Mum and I did a great ride together and made the ‘Adventures with Mum’ video. This year, it’s all about Lumi! We got Lumi at the beginning of the year, and like everyone who has a dog, just can’t imagine life without her! We packed up the car and camped out overnight, waking to a beautiful blanket of snow. It was going to be Lumi’s first of many snowy adventures, and off we went! With quite a bit of snow and an icy cold wind up top, we had to keep moving and didn’t have much time for our sandwiches. I was slipping and sliding all over the place, and Lumi was in her element! I am excited for many more days like it over the years to come.

 Wow, a video that actually shows a rider walking uphill! Amazing, I thought I was the only one.

 Name of the dog definitely suits the snowy landscape. Lumi = Snow in Finnish.

 lumi is looking through the corners nicely.. take note people

 My trail dog, Chase, has amazing lines. Enters wide, looks through the whole corner, apexes near the end. It's a sight to behold!

 Please, please be careful riding with dogs in the snow.. my friend tragically lost her lovely collie to hypothermia a few weeks ago while out with her in the snow. Just hadn't noticed how cold it was getting once the wind came up and the poor dog, slowed and slowed and despite being put in a group shelter, warmed and then carried down she died in the car. So, so sad and avoidable unfortunately. Much sorrow and guilt all round.. just don't let it happen to your faithful friends..

 I love that Lumi is wearing a matching harness! Such a great video on so many levels!

 Seeing as I'm fairly sure that Lumi is under 12 months, I certainly hope that Hannah is taking heed of the advice about exercise amounts on a not fully mature dog. Otherwise she's subjecting her dog to a lot of potential pain and issues further down the line.

 Hi! Lumi is 12 months now, so she's able to do 1 hour a day. Between 12 - 14 months this size/breed reach maturity, so still taking it easy for a little while longer. We filmed over 3 days so as not to be out very long each day. Thanks for your concern, but we've been so careful and are aware of all the exercise restrictions etc. Smile

 I ran my Aussie like that then he died at age 11 of an enlarged heart. Doctor said my fault. Today I don't endurance run my dog. She just gets normal exercise like free play with other dogs, chasing ball, swimming, etc.. Just no long endurance. My Aussie sometimes logged 30-40 miles a week.

 I bet your dog was very happy and not regret a second!

 @CHELIE: Absolutely. However, you didn't see the suffering with the enlarged heart so it's a catch 22.

 @swellhunter: Enlarged heart,cancer etc. somehow we all die,but it's important how we live.

 I usually don't like the looks of blue-eyed dogs, but she is quite lovely. I'm headed out now to ride the North Backbone Trail in Salida, CO. We got about an inch of snow last night on what were fairly dry trails in the Arkansas Hills. It will be way easier riding than Hannah's, but I am sadly dogless. Thanks for the inspiration.

 I've been very excitedly awaiting some filming with Lumi! What a stunning example she is.
Well done Brodie on some stunning photo/videography. Looking forward to many more vids and hopefully catching up with the three of you on the trails someday. D

 Watching that dog have so much fun made my eyes water (also see :not crying)

 The dog is awesome, for sure... but also kudos to Hannah for camping in the snow and riding. I'm feeling properly guilty for slacking off these last few weeks, gotta get my winter rides on!

 Don't know which is more brilliant: Lumi's eyes or the paint job on that bike.

 Proof that you can ride in shorts in the winter!!! The winter gear guide was right.

 Awesome! My dog Gracie is an Aussie Border Collie mix and looks very similar to Lumi. Wonderful companion and trail dog, but she never stops! Love every minute of it.

 lumi is all like "omg best day ever!"

 I think for a dog every day is like "omg best day ever!" - I wish I was more like that. Smile

 Hannah has to be one of the coolest,smartest, and quietest pros out there. I may be a fan boy...but...it is what it is.

 What a glorious tail that pup has! Nothing like riding with your best friend!

 Dog is my copilot

 My next major life goal is to enlist a trail/camping buddy. This definitely stoked that fire.

 Nice work Brodie! A far cry from the riding in Morocco in October. Still waiting for meaningful snow in Idaho. Cheers!

 I love dogs... I like mountain... I'm pretty passionate about mtb! What else?! This video is amazing!!

 Great holiday flick! My daughter is going to be so stoked to watch this after school! Nice work!

 What breed?
  • + 1
 My guess is Australian Shepherd, or at least some kind of mix involving that breed.
  • + 1
 Purebred Blue Merle Australian shepherd for sure.
  • + 2
 @super8: no way to know "for sure" - it could be anything along those lines. All those herding dogs, shelties, bc's, rough collies, aussies, mini-aussies, etc come in Blue Merle. My pooch looks like a purebred sheltie, but he's actually a BC mix.

 @R0c1nant3: And they are all awesome buddies!
