Given the global pandemic, public transportation has significantly decreased, as many people no longer believe it is a safe way to commute and travel. This has resulted in an increase in other forms of transportation, and more specifically, in a huge bicycle boom! Riding bicycles not only helps promote social distancing, but it also allows you to get some exercise in. And with the bicycle trailer, you can now take your pet along for the ride with you. Now, that sounds like an adventure!
Other than having stimulating adventures with your best friend, bicycle trailers are also great if you have an ill, elderly, or disabled pet. Your pet will still be able to get outside time without feeling uncomfortable or unsafe.
If you are planning to get a bicycle trailer for your pet, we have some great information to share to ensure that both you and your pet have a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable ride!
When traveling with your pet on a bicycle, you must check if the Pet Trailer is properly installed and in good condition. If the weight of your pet exceeds the recommended weight limit, this could damage or break the Pet Trailer. It is imperative that you make sure that your pet(s) are under the recommended weight limit, in order to keep them safe. The last thing you want is for your pet to topple over during their relaxing ride!
The most important thing is to pay attention to your speed. You should not exceed 10 mph and should decrease your speed considerably when turning; we recommend under 5 mph while turning to avoid flipping. We do not advise making sharp or quick turns when traveling with a bicycle pet trailer!
If you love to bike and have a pet, bicycle trailers make life much easier, more pleasant, and more fun! There is nothing better than getting active outside, and spending time creating exciting memories with your pet. Let’s bring on the adventure!
