Not a good idea. Pets aren't always predictable.

Tie the leash around your wrist so the leash doesn't get tangle in the bike

You could use something like this -- http://www.petsupplies.com/item/petego-hands-free-bicycle-dog-leash/400288/?srccode=GPPETSUP&gclid=CLyDrNy1g7oCFYmf4AodCiQA-A Be sure to ease your dog into the activity so it gets used to your bike.

Do NOT tie the leash to your wrist! One pull from the dog and you will have a broken wrist. Amazon has several leash attachments for bikes that run from $10 to over $50. Use one of those. They keep you dog away from tires and will center your dog on your bike should it pull. Just search bike leash.

You can only do this if your dog loves running so much that he'd rather run than bolt after something like another dog, food, etc. I had a sled dog that someone had abandoned. I found the only way to get him enough exercise was to let him run while I biked. I put plastic straws (shortened) near the center of the wheels to keep him from getting too close to the tires. I put the end of the leash under my hand rather than have my hand through it so that in an emergency I would not be pulled over. Worked for 8 or 9 years until he was a slower dog and I could run with him.

If it's little, invest in a basket. If it's big, you should look into getting one of those little carts on the side of your bike.

Put your dogs leash over one of the handles and put your hand over it then start biking. Your dog will run for its life- beware you will be pulled a little bit.

I have only done this with large dogs. But I have found one of the most important and first things to do is train the dog to a bike. I start by walking next to the bike with the dog on a leash on the other side. the leash should be just long enough so the front edge of the front tire is about level with the dogs chest at it's maximum length. Begin walking with the dog and use the front tire wheel to bump the dog in the shoulder if she tries to go to far forward. The point of this exercise is not to hurt the dog. Not much force is not necessary. Be patient it shouldn't take too long for the dog to begin to understand not to try to cross in front of the bike or even come fully abreast of the front tire.. The dog leashes for the bike are also excellent ideas although I have never before used them they could make the process a lot simpler. I have also found it useful to use verbal commands warning the dog of stops and turns... but I was going fast with my leashed dog and she needed the warning....be prepared to wreck if you have a large dog it will happen eventually; it's worth it to me. My dog loved running with me on the bike so much and I enjoyed having her with me.

Put it in a basket on the front or put the leash on the handle bars or you could get a bicycle built for two! Personally i would just walk with the dog and take a bike ride by myself later.

This is not a great idea sence your dog could easily pull you in a messed of trouble. If it is a small dog, then but it in the basket of your bikw or in a bag on you back. If it is a big dog then you should find out if the dog can walk with you at a slow pace let alone ride the bike at a slow pace, you might fall over if going to slow. If the dog runs after things common like cars or people then do not attach the dog to you or the bike. Above all if he can stay with you you should be fine other wise take in advise the other thing other and I have said. It could just save your life. :3

Get a milk crate and bolt it on to your bike and put your dog in it and tie the leash on to the crate.

Training, practice...make sure he/she is well-trained, knows how to heel, and is not overly excitable. It also may help to try an extra long or extendable leash so that if he/she has some room to roam without pulling you over.
