Cape May Rear Mount Bike Basket (Natural)
Cape May is the furthest point of the South Jersey Shore. It’s the crown jewel of the region with gorgeous sandy beaches and an old-world town center filled with gingerbread Victorian houses and quaint bed and breakfasts. Cape May has a nice selection of dog friendly accommodations. Bicycle lovers with dogs are encouraged to take their four-legged friends for a ride on the boardwalk during the off season.
Our Cape May basket has one of the best carrying capacities of any hand crafted wicker basket we make. It can hold dogs up to 28 lbs by mounting to your rear bicycle rack (not included). This natural willow basket uses a reinforced double weaving technique with a solid 1/2 inch thick wood bottom to give it maximum strength while taking your companion for a ride. Due to its rear mounted location we recommend always using a basket leash (included) to ensure the safety of your best friend.
Even without your dog, this basket has so many uses. It holds a ton. You won’t be able to make excuses for not taking your bike to the market.
Includes Two (Black) basket leashes! And steel mounting hardware to mount to your rear bicycle rack. Uses small thumbscrews.
Please see our complete line of basket accessories for beautiful handmade liners and pillows that fit this basket.
Will your dog fit? See our Fit Guide to ensure a proper fit.
Basket ships with steel rear mounting bracket to attach to your rear bike mount with easy to use thumbscrews. Some assembly required. Mounting bracket can accommodate racks 6 inches wide or less. Be aware: Many electric bicycles with rear battery packs will not fit.

We ordered and finally installed the large Cape May rear-mount bike basket (special ordered in white) and the front basket previously purchased. The workmanship is thoughtful and beautiful. Mom & doggo love the new basket, liners & cushions which look amazing! Dad is ever thankful for the newer easy & convenient metal rack!
Our baby, Fifi Fluff, took to the new basket naturally with no issues.
Thank you Jason for taking the time to discuss & assist us with the custom order! We're ready for summer for years to come. Will definitely be ordering new seasonal liners, etc. Thanks again!
I have been most pleased with my rear-mounted basket, liner, cushion and the short leashes to keep Ziggy from doing anything crazy. It is a high quality product and looks great as we ride around our Charleston neighborhood. As soon as I unboxed the basket, Ziggy (Chihuahua mix) sensed it was his and enjoyed sitting in it on our living room floor for a day or two until I mounted it on the bike. Now he enjoys our rides, despite his inability to indulge his extreme fascination with urine as up-close and personal as he is accustomed to when we walk. This having him sit in the basket prior to mounting was a good step for his accommodation in advance of putting the pooch in for the first ride.
In terms of the mounting hardware and system, the side thumbscrew worked fine for the type of rear rack that I have. Because my rear rack had a thin, flat metal panel on it, I had to drill a hole through that panel to accommodate the bottom thumbscrew. But I'm glad I did that and used both, because the basket was noticeably more stable with the two screws compared to with the side screw alone. I highly recommend this classy basket for dogs up to about 12 or 16 pounds.
We bought the Rear Rack Bike Baskets for our Scoozy Electric Bikes with the Basket liners. Our bike racks were too wide for the mounting bracket that comes with the baskets. No problem. I mounted them with heavy duty zip ties. They're 1/2 inch wide zip ties that can handle 240 lbs. A little over kill, but they worked great. Our two boys love bike riding with us now.
Love our baskets !!!
And this company. They are so kind and quick with their service too!
We are pleased with the new basket design with the thicker wood bottom. Much sturdier and so stable. You will be very happy with your purchase and you can trust that if there are any questions or problems you will receive a very quick, courteous and thorough response. They go out of their way to make sure you happy with their product. Enjoy !
Thank you Beach Dog !!!
I frequently get comments from people when Daisy (my Westie pup) and I are out running errands: "so cute." More importantly, Daisy loves to ride in the along.
I found the perfect rear bike rack that works hand-in-hand with Beach and Dog Co.'s new attachment mechanism. Simplified everything. And I was able to use the shorter "thumb screw" of the attachment mechanism on the side, and eliminate the second, longer screw entirely.
I purchased the liner at the same time - a must. And the safety straps have already protected Daisy in a quick stop.
I thank Beach and Dog Co. for providing such a wonderful product. I would purchase again in a heartbeat.
