Cape May Rear Mount Bike Basket with Cage
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.

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.
Very happy with my basket,received it very quick,all is good !
My dog loves it! The basket/cage and attachment seem very well made. The instructions to install leave a LOT to be desired. I had to buy a new bike rack because my existing one wasn't long enough to fit the basket. The instruction indicate that you should secure this basket to the bike rack with a screw that sticks up into the basket, which seems odd, so we secured it with a bungy cord instead. I'm going to replace the cute, but cheap, cushion with a rigid piece of foam to span the bungy cord; the provided cushion gets bunched up after 2 seconds of my dog being in the basket. I also customized the little oval metal emblem that came with this. It originally had beach dog written on it, but since I live in a city, it seemed a little strange to call my dog a beach dog. It's easy to get off and I turned it around, added his name, and now everyone can shout, "hi Neko" when we're biking thru the neighborhood. My dog is 18 pounds and he has plenty of room. Thanks for selling this, Beach Dog Co!
I absolutely love this dog basket! Works exactly how I hoped for my 18 lb pup and he loves riding in it too!
