Cape May Rear Mount Bike Basket
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 install on your rear rack mount with easy to use thumb screws. The bracket is shipped already attached to the basket. Just place the basket on your rack and screw on the yellow thumbscrews.
**IMPORTANT** PLEASE MEASURE YOUR RACK: Our mounting bracket can accommodate racks 5 to 6 inches wide. 6 inch wide racks are the industry standard but some bikes come with preinstalled racks from the manufacture and they are increasingly using custom racks that are wider or narrower than normal. Be aware: Many electric bicycles with rear battery packs will not fit.

Awesome that the basket is big enough for my 20 pound dog.He loves it!
This basket is great. The wicker part itself is extremely well made, it's a great size (our dog is 30 pounds and fits perfectly), and the mounting mechanism is excellently secure. We got it with the turtle liner, which comes with a very comfortable-looking pillow and keeps our dog comfy and safe on rides. I would have given it five stars except that the plywood bottom of this where the mounting mechanism is attached is split a little bit (shown in the attached picture) and I wouldn't feel safe without the liner for fear of splinters.
I am in LOVE with my new Beach & Dog Co. basket! I purchased the rear mount basket for my e-bike. It fits perfectly (had to figure out a new way to mount due to a tail light). It is very securely attached and I feel confident putting my beloved pup in it for a ride. My dog can sit or lay down. I purchased the strap that clips to her harness. There is no way for her to jump out or get bumped out. It’s very secure! My dog is 11lb terrier mix. She has plenty of room. A heavier dog would fit, no problem. The basket is beautifully made and is super sturdy. I love the area made available for clipping your dog in. I’ve never seen that in a regular bike basket. They thought of everything when designing their baskets. I highly recommend purchasing their basket liner. It has a nice cushion, made to fit the basket of your choice. The fabric is really nice and vibrant and is secured with a coordinating ribbon. It’s super cute!! Overall, I give my basket a 9 out of 10 only because we had to figure out a bit of a different way to mount it to our e-bike. With the rise in popularity of e-bikes I’m sure they will re-engineer that mounting process to simplify the process.
This was the best purchase for my Simon! We have such a great time on our bike rides. Thank you so much for being a great company and for having amazing customer service! I would recommend this company to anyone. Worth every penny!
