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 the included cage. If you want to carry your pup without the cage please order two basket leashes.

Height under cage is 18 inches. Please ensure your dog will fit while sitting prior to ordering.

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 rear cage with faux leather straps! 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 (the bracket is already attached to the basket) to install on your rear bike mount with easy to use thumbscrews. Minimal assembly required.

**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.

    I ordered the Cape May Rear Mount Bike Basket for my 19lb. Cocker/mix. The best feature of this very sturdy, well made basket is the hardware that comes built on to the basket itself allowing for quick installation/removal. It secures so well to the rack that it is very safe. I do wish the basket was a bit deeper (most of the photos show smaller dogs) because unless the dog is very comfortable and not nervous it is worry some that the dog is less secure. The tethered straps help hold the pup in place. I shopped for a few different baskets that I sent back- This basket is the best for my needs. I don't see it really fitting a dog larger than about 22lbs. Jason and the staff were VERY helpful with all questions that I had, and shipping was very prompt.

    Ready set go!

    This works great! Tried different bike carriers for my 18lb Frenchton but should have saved myself the trouble and got this first. Yes it’s pricey but worth every penny I assure you! She loves it!

    Exactly what I was looking for!

    This basket works well and it was easy to install. It matches by cruiser bike and is so cute. Also, my dog doesn't hate it, so that is a plus.

    Difficult fit to bike luggage rack

    Our order arrived quickly and was well packaged. The only issue encountered was mounting the basket to the bicycle luggage rack which is a tapered platform instead of the straight side variety. After some modification to the mount hardware I was able to obtain a secure fit. The quality of the basket, mount and wire cover to keep fido onboard are all excellent. Based on the mounting issue mentioned I would recommend this basket & cover to owners of conventional bikes with balloon tires for ride comfort and ease of mounting.
