The Bike Tow Leash works wonderfully on either or both sides of trikes whether they have one or two front wheels. You will be safe, stable and able to still get through narrow places. As your dog(s) slow for an obstacle they are automatically moved from heel position to behind.

Tadpole type Trikes:

The Bike Tow Leash makes Riding trikes with dog(s) very safe, rewarding and comfortable. As with other applications, the BTL will space the dog away from the wheels with a resilient barrier that also communicates direction and speed changes. The BTL easily installs on Tadpole type trikes, having two front wheels, much like on bicycles. Clamp just ahead of the axle on either side. Examples of these trikes are: TerraTrike, Catrike, ICE, and Green Speed.

Adult type Trikes:

If you have an adult type trike with 2 rear wheels, the BTL works equally as well. Examples of these are; Schwinn Meridian, Worksman, Torker, and Sun. Installation these adult trike requires the Adult Trike Adapter in our accessories (link). It clamps to the rear axle tube as shown in the photos. You will need to measure the circumference of the axle tube is between 4 ½ and 5 1/8 inches or 113 and 140 mm. If your measurement comes out more or less that those, send us an email with make, model and photos and we will make an adapter that will fit your special needs.

This installation chart is used as a guide for example Bike Tow Leash attachments. If your trike is not listed it does NOT mean your bike won't fit a Bike Tow Leash. To figure out what you need yourself, the quick mount requires 5/8 of an inch flat area forward and below the rear axle. If not enough flat area for the Quick Mount, the Chain Stay Clamp is your next option. Please contact us if you have any questions about your bike adjustments and what you may need to attach the Bike Tow Leash.

My husband and I have Sun recumbent Trikes and the adapter that Mike made to fit them works great. I have a very high drive Labrador puppy who is about 9 months old now.
He still reacts frequently to dogs, people and critters and the tow behind leash with the adapter have stood up well to his lunges. I am very impressed with the engineering. We bought 2 adapters so we could switch the leash between our bikes, it goes on and off really easily. Teddy adapted to the leash quiet easily and it has saved my shoulder a lot of stress and strain. I recommend this product whole heartedly !

Perfect to walk my small dog

Love it, love it!

It works as well as I'd hoped it would. My pup is 96 lbs and I feel like I really have control, which is a great relief.
I have a trike and the adapter was easily installed.
I tell everyone about the tow leash, it's hard to believe it isn't made by Elves! Thanks so much.


So far it seems to be holding up to my dog’s incredible pulls when he sights another dog . Working on that behavior !
