Cape May Rear Mount Bike Basket (Natural)
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 6 inches wide or less. 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 than normal. Be aware: Many electric bicycles with rear battery packs will not fit.

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!
This basket was easy to install and fits my pup perfectly. I get compliments all over the place with my little doggy in the back of my bike.
This rear basket is just what we were looking for. Muffin is a larger size Yorkie and fits wonderfully in it!
We took a risk because we had the backpack carrier but Teddy barked all the way back and forth when we rode our bikes. But this time he was quiet and happy! I have to say he jumped out three minutes after I started riding my bike so we explained and my husband was riding his bike saying “stay”. Teddy understood and for the next one hour he was there without any show! The park was a little full even in quarantine and people were waving and saying “hi” to us and Teddy!
