Penny Goes Cycling

Penny Goes Cycling
August 11, 2011 by Connie Wilson

My work schedule always seems to infringe on my exercise time at the club, so in order to keep up a somewhat basic level of fitness I’ve taken to riding my bike to work. As I always bring Penny, my canine side-kick with me, I chose a Solvit Tagalong pet bicycle basket in which to transport my precious pooch (works for dogs up to 13 pounds).  Installed in just minutes, Penny fits securely inside and the leash clip keeps her in place should she happen to spot a cat en route… an important feature since Penny loves to chase cats. Especially handy are the convenient pockets that allow me to stash my sunglasses, keys, leash, wallet, water bottle and more.  You can even remove the basket, click on the shoulder strap and use the basket as a portable pet carrier.  Brilliant! Also be prepared for the loads of “cute” comments as you cycle past bystanders. 

For those wishing a more classic look, Solvit also make a wicker-style model.
