Cat Rides on Shoulders of Pro Cyclist Every Day

Meet Semyon Semyonych, a cat who accompanies his professional-cyclist owner Alexei while he trains. This fearless feline sits perched atop Alexei's shoulders while cycling from 30 - 100 kilometers per day (that's about 20 - 60 miles). The two hail from Ulyanovisk, Russia, and started riding together in March of 2016.

Semyon has become something of a celebrity in his homeland, and is even recognized as a pro himself, having acquired his very own cycling club membership card.

Cycle on, Semyon!
