I started by putting the basket on the floor in his room to let him get acquainted with it. Once he felt comfortable I placed him inside the basket (while still on the floor) and he remained calm and curious. Since he was showing no sign of absolutely hating the idea of being in the basket, I decided to put it on my Azor and take him for a spin.
For 10 minutes he was loving the ride, looking straight ahead and feeling the wind blow through his fur. He started to become restless so I made the decision to head home.
Eggsy is too big for the basket now (he has grown so much), but I am researching ways I can bike with him next summer. Here is a quick read from Momentum Magazine on biking with your dog: http://momentummag.com/biking-with-dogs/.
Happy riding with your furry companion!
