Shimano’s ‘A Dog’s Tale’: Must-Watch for Mountain Bikers, Dog Lovers

Berms, bikes, belly rubs — trust us, Shimano’s new film will warm your heart.

Shimano’s new original film, “A Dog’s Tale,” is pure joy. The film celebrates the joys of mountain biking — through the eyes of the trail dog.

Follow along with Raven, a 13-year-old retired trail dog from Squamish, British Columbia, as she trots from Canada to Utah to South Africa and back. And discover all the other four-legged trail personalities she meets along the way.

“Raven has spent countless days frolicking on loamy singletrack beneath towering spruces, but old age has slowed her down,” the film boasts. “Now, Raven happily lies in the driveway, watching dog after dog, and their human, head for the hill.”

What are you waiting for? Cuddle up with your trail dog (or a friend’s) and settle in for this feel-good film.
