    Leave you bike at home and take the dog for a walk. Most communitys require leashs so that means your dog will be running along yanking the leash from side to side. A real hazard for those that are sharing the road with you. Plus a real hazard to Fluffy.

    With a small or medium size dog, use a trailer and a harness. Run the lap belt through the harness to keep the pooch inside the trailer. Get a used trailer and never haul kids in it after it has been commited to dog haulin' duties. (double meaning)

    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Frankly I don't think it's safe for you or for other people. If you want to go cycling do it without a dog. If you want to go out with at dog, do it without a bike.
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!
    Stay calm and bring a towel.
