    I’ve remarked in this space how much I dig my @bedrockbags Kit bag for hauling bike kit, but it’s also oh-so-perfect as a travelling doggo bag and perfectly holds all this with room to spare: mud/snow towel for cleaning of the feets 3-4 days worth of foods poop bags 1L nalgene for roadside drinkies * food bowl * leash […]
