Kind of an odd question...

I just got a pup and wanted to start taking him out on some of my rides. Does anyone do this? What can I use to carry him? I was thinking a backpack of some sort but I can't really find anything out there. He's 8lbs right now and will get up to around 15.

If I could, I would.


Unfortunately, adding 65 pounds to the bike/rider system if I were to carry my dog would be pretty anti-weight-weenie.

I would ride with my dog but he's too fast. He's tops out at about 70 km/h. (He's also done after 500 - 700 metres and at 95 lbs he ain't going in no backpack).

Please take topics like these to chat. Starting them over at bikeforums would be even better. Thanks
