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.

    We love this basket

    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.

    Ruby's beach ride-along

    My Ruby and I absolutely love this comfy basket. Every Fathers Day weekend for over 25 years my family has a reunion at the beach in Wildwood Crest NJ. One of our traditions is to rent bikes and ride the length of the boardwalk on Saturday morning to our breakfast destination (can you imagine the the trail of the 45+ riders). For the last few years I've rented a bike with a basket for my Ruby to ride-along in, but the rental is only for a couple hours and goes by so quickly, and I always need to bring plenty of beach towels to make sure the basket is somewhat comfortable for Ruby. This year I decided to purchase a bike of my own. The Beach & Dog Co basket was the perfect fit both for my bike and for my JRT Ruby. I am so happy with my purchase, and Ruby is too. Now, back at home in Pennsylvania, I take Ruby for rides all the time. When she sees me easily strapping the basket to the back rack of my bike she gets so excited knowing she's headed for an outing. Thank you Beach & Dog Co for making such a wonderfully crafted, beautiful and comfortable basket for my Ruby to ride-along!

    Love our rear mount basket

    We received our basket and couldn’t wait to try it out. It was the first time our fur babies were on a bike and they did great. I love this basket and the liner we purchased. I’m so thankful I ordered the leads as my young yorkie decided to jump out of the basket! Luckily she couldn’t go anywhere and a huge disaster was averted.

    Awesome basket!!

    We just got back from our inaugural bike ride and the basket is perfect! It’s sturdy, adorable with the liner, and just big enough for my 12 lb. schnauzer to sit comfortably without roaming. The new attachment mechanism was super -easy to fit to the bike. We had some trouble with the attachments for the leash leads (I immediately broke one trying to get them on the basket) so I just got a couple of good carabiners and it works great. Can’t wait to go out again!
