How can I take my dog on a bike?

Is it legal to ride a bike with a dog?

How do I secure my dog in a bike basket?
The Quiet Ride Method
Connect a leash to your dog’s collar or harness and attach that to your bike basket. This will keep your dog from jumping out of the basket. You may consider having a tether on each side of your dog’s collar or harness to be sure he’s not able to jump to one side but not the other.
Are there bike seats for dogs?
The buddy rider pet seat is mounted to the bike seat allowing your pet to sit comfortably strapped in and ready to go. The seat is designed to fit almost any modern adult bike, measuring at least 48cm between the seat post and the handle bars.
Are bike baskets safe for dogs?
It may seem obvious, but most dog bike baskets can only handle fairly small dogs, less than 20 lbs. However, this doesn’t mean larger dogs have to miss out on all the biking fun! For bigger breeds, a bike trailer is an alternative solution, in which your dog can be pulled behind you as your ride around.
