I also bike with Ziggy on my right, so he's not on the "traffic" side of the bike. It would make me really nervous, since we really don't have any bike lanes where I live. Does left work OK for you guys? Why did you pick the left side? I know it's the classic heel side for obedience training, but I've always had a personal preference for heeling on the right... just me.
I hold my leash too with my left hand. I keep the arm in and always controlled. Ruby loves to pull the bike but i keep her just enough infront where i can pull her back if need be. I have to keep eye on her for signs she sees a squirrel or cat. She will start speeding up when that happens and I have to pull back and get control or a disaster is imminent.
Bike riding with your high energy breed is the way to go! They get in excellent shape that way and when you get home you know where they are going....usually to flop down on the cool kitchen floor for a good long while!!
