Martin and his dalmatian Sancho are a perfect team. Martin, who started off as a mountain biker, loves every facet of cycling. He doesn’t have a car, choosing instead to run errands with his capable cargo bike. Martin familiarized Sancho with cycling at an early age…Sancho loves accompanying Martin on spirited “full-gas rides” and is everything you could ask for in a trail dog. Both agree that nothing strengthens the bond between human and canine more than adventure.
