Cape May Rear Mount Bike Basket
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.

This basket is super simple and sturdy. My 16lb pup and I went for a ride yesterday and he looked totally comfortable. The leashes work great, and the basket is huge, plenty of room for him and a water bottle. My only critique would be, I didn't receive attachment instructions in the packaging, but I figured it out easy enough with the help of the photos online. Thank you!!
Love the basket, matches the front one I bought previously. Now I have room for two frenchies!
If you have a SixThreeZero bike be aware that the back rack that comes standard with the bike isn’t a perfect fit (the top supports aren’t flush), so this may need some modification (or zip ties) to attach.
This basket is very sturdy and my pup loves it! My only complaint is that the installation instructions were confusing. Would highly recommend!
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.
