    I was wondering how many of you ride your bicycles with your bunnies?

    What carriers do you use?

    I’ve been looking at a large backpack style, the regular carrier with a shoulder strap, and even debating the sling to let them nestle in (though I am super hesitant on that thinking it is not secure enough, but if any of you have experience with them, i’d feel more confident in them)

    Thanks!

    A sling sounds exceptionally risky, all it would take would be for a car horn or something to startle him and he could leap out and get run over. Not to mention the risk if you had a minor bump or accident yourself.

    Is there a specific reason you need to take him places by bike?

    Yeah, I can’t imagine… my bunnies are shy, but I’m pretty sure they’d be terrified (and I’d be terrified of hurting them if I fell).  Why do you need to transport them?  I only take them to the vet but would rent a car or take a taxi for that.

    Hmm…a bicycle does sound quite unsuitable to transport bunnies in.

    I’ve driven a car with my bunny in his hard plastic carrier strapped in the passenger seat, and even then when I make a slightly more angled turn, go over a small bump on the road, or accelerate the car ever so slightly, it seems like Kurotta experiences these 10 times more severely, losing his balance quite easily and sometimes even falling to his side in the carrier and then panic a little trying to get back up on his feet. I was paying extra attention not to drive too fast and make suuuuper slow turns, but even then…it didn’t really seem to work.

    Can’t really imagine how it’s like on a bicycle 😮

    Honestly, I simply wouldn’t risk it. An adult tricycle would be stable enough to be safe, if a good carrier is well strapped in, but a bicycle is precariously balanced at all times, so there’s no stability or assurance of safety.
