Bicycle Sidecar for dogs

If you’re going for a long drive or if your dog gets tired from running on a leash, you can just put your dog next to you in the sidecar. The sidecar is perfectly suitable to use for dogs as it’s designed to be even safe to use for children.

History of the bicycle sidecar
The bicycle side car dates back to the early 1900s when it was invented as a cost effective and popular alternative to the automobile. The sidecar has also been used in the military combined with a motorcycle. Mechanized armies used motorcycles with sidecars often as transport vehicles. This military origin is reflected in the Beach Vintage Military Green Fat bike with sidecar. This bike comes in a stealthy military green colour that reminds one of the military use of the sidecar.
Handling of the bicycle sidecar
With the sidecar attached to the bike you still get great handling of the bicycle. It will of course be a little different since there’s a third wheel attached with extra weight. For example, with the Phatfour sidecar bicycle you still get excellent manoeuvrability as there’s a flexible attachment. A sidecar makes the bike asymmetrical. A fixed sidecar mounted on the right of the bike can go faster in left turns than in right turns because the sidecar prevents it from tipping over. With a flexible attachment this becomes less of an issue.
