Dog carrier for bike riding
Do you have any carriers you have tried out and are willing to share some
tips? I'm looking for a carrier that can be used with the BOB or back pack.
If I do want to use a backpack as a carry point, does anybody know of any
carry point on a backpack that works with the BOB?

I've tried some of the older designs that were attached to or
attached to something like a waist belt that carried a BOB. They were
rather inconvenient to use, and it always seemed that the attachment
of these carriers to anything was awkward, and was not suitable for any
type of bicycle activity. I believe these carriers were only for bicycles
that had the center of mass behind the carrier.
For people that have a regular carrier attached to a belt, I've
always found that it is nice to have a "dome" of some type, like the type
used for backpacks, to allow the person to put a "carry bag" of some
type between the carrier and the bicycle. Then the person can access the
bag at a distance from the bicycle, and still have easy access to the bag.
This will also allow for a "drop off" of the bag so that the contents
of the bag do not hang in the wind.
In my experience with the newer style of carriers, I found them
to be fairly comfortable to carry on a bicycle. They seem to be easier
to use. You can just stand on the pedals and swing the carrier around
to the front. There are also a lot more choices of styles, and the
designs are a lot more sophisticated and easy to use. If you were to
carry a traditional, old style carrier on a bicycle, it would have to
be hung from the top tube of the bicycle, or carried on a bicycle in
a rack on your back.
I found a bag that was made by a company that makes bicycle
bags, and that is called "LiftBags". It is advertised as being able
to lift one hundred pounds. This bag also has its own special carrier
system that attaches to the front and rear dropout area of the bicycle.
Another company that makes these bags is "Muddy Boots". They
have a line of bags, some of which are the same models used for the
carrying of the BOB, that can lift up to one hundred pounds. These
bags are also advertised to be very comfortable, and it can be worn
on your back like a backpack, or used as a front carrier by attaching
it to the front of the bicycle. Muddy Boots claims that these bags
can be folded in half and fit into a small backpack.
One other company that makes a similar product to the Muddy Boots
bags is "Gravity Gear". They are a small business that sells these
types of products directly to bicycle shops, and they have their own
special system that lets the bag attach to the fork of the bicycle
and then the bag is attached to the seat post with a special hitch.
The gravity gear bag that I use has several straps that you can use
to adjust the bag to where it fits you best.
I also have a back pack that is very similar to one that you
would buy for hiking. It is made by the company named "MULE". It has
multiple compartments and also has a place where you can get a cup of
coffee. This one is great because it has a compartment inside of it
that holds up to two water bottles, and a cup of coffee. When I am
going on a long ride, I just fill the back pack up with water and
coffee, and it weighs almost nothing!
There are a lot of things that you can do to make your bicycle
more comfortable, like these examples show. There are more people
who are into bicycling than you would think, so chances are there
is someone close by who you can ride with, or you can do a bicycle
ride with your friends. Just remember that it does not have to be
an expensive bike to be comfortable, you can use a bike that you
picked up at a garage sale for about $10-$20, and it will still work
If you want to know more about the history of bicycling, you
can watch this video to get a idea of the events that led up to the
cycling boom in the late 1800's.
When you are out riding, you should always listen for horns,
to see if you should stop. Do not hesitate to stop if you see cars
coming towards you. You should also be careful with the speed that
you ride, cars see bikes, and sometimes will not give them any
Finally, make sure that you wear proper safety gear and that
you wear your helmet properly, because there are accidents out
there. Be sure to always look both ways before you get on a bike,
and never start riding when there are cars approaching.
