We’re big on recycling and re-purposing materials at Four Muddy Paws and personally we’re into cycling too so of course it’s a perfect fit when you bring together Missouri’s premier cycling event – The Gateway Cup – and one of our favorite earth-friendly dog supply companies – Cycledog!
The Gateway Cup brings home the Tour de Lafayette to our Lafayette Square neighborhood on Friday, August 29.Â This is a full afternoon of racing from kids on Big Wheels to 12 years old, plus professional women’s and men’s cyclists from around the world. The world of cycling comes alive in Lafayette Square with races around the park – what makes it even more exciting is it’s a nighttime criterium – so there’s plenty of action as you watch the riders race around Lafayette Park!Â If you never been down for the races you have no idea what you’re missing!
So, of course, we’re partnering with Cycledog – a great earth-friendly (and cycling focused!) pet company to bring you some fun earth-friendly and practical dog gear to bring home to your furry friend.Â We love their eco-last toys, collars, eco-friendly poop bags and even their cycling socks!
Their toys are made from a blend of high durability rubber and post-consumer recycled rubber from bicycle inner tubes. Cycle Dog Ecolast toys are the first molded pet toys made from post-consumer recycled materials. The toys are nontoxic, durable and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They squeak, they float, they bounce and you can use them as a puzzle toy too.
So come on out on Friday, August 29 and see us at the Festival Site on Park Avenue – there will be great food to eat, cool beverages, and of course, great dog gear from Four Muddy Paws & Cycle Dog!
Â Â Â See you at The Gateway Cup!
