If you haven't hopped on the bike trend yet, you will now. Biking is excellent for efficient transportation and exercise. A nice bike ride through the park or to your local brewery would make for a fun Saturday. The only thing that could make it better is a bike pet carrier for bringing your dog along.

Of course, your pet can't Stranger Things style and stand on the back of a bike, but they sure can ride E.T. The Terrestrial style in a dog basket. Dog bike baskets are available on Amazon. There are plenty to choose from. There are front-facing bicycle carriers, rear baskets, and even some dog bike trailers. If you think your furry friend would enjoy a bike ride with you, they'll love their dog bike carrier.

Travelin K9's bike basket is another great fit for small dogs. The wicker basket is too cute, and it's something to consider if you're looking for something that doesn't have a shoulder carrier attached.

A customer gave it a perfect rating and wrote, "Super cute. Well made. Works great for my 10 lb Havanese but could fit a bigger dog. I ended up zip tying it to the rear rack of our tandem so it didn't interfere with the headlight. The tether inside for the dog is strong which is good because my little guy can fit between the bars of the top part easily."

If you're looking for something extra sturdy, consider this basket by Walky Dog.

A customer gave it five stars and wrote, "We love this pet basket! It is perfect for our 17 lb Shih Tzu mix dog. The engineering is fantastic. We had previously ordered another one which looked similar but sagged onto the front tire and the attachments interfered with the brakes and gears. I watched the YouTube video showing how to mount the Walky basket and it was very helpful."

Pet trailers

If you have a large dog, this is the better option. This pet trailer can fit dogs up to 50 pounds. There's a rear doggy-door for your pet to easily climb in and out of. They can't get out on their own if you use the internal leash. If you live in an area with tons of mosquitoes, your dog will love this trailer.
