I think that a Nantucket bike basket will greatly enhance your bike ride to the beach! The baskets are gorgeous and look so handsome on Beach Cruisers.

You can find a wide selection of Nantucket bike baskets at Hayneedle. They come in different styles, sizes and colors. They also carry really great wire bike baskets (also made by Nantucket Bike Basket & Co).
Then, check out Ocean Offerings too. Their collection includes a pet basket!
Nantucket bike baskets are hand-crafted from rattan with a durable weaving technique. You will have this basket for a long time. To learn all about the baskets and the story behind them, click here. Hint: The baskets are not actually made on Nantucket. Below is an excerpt from the company’s website.
“Both my father and I have been very fortunate to have worked with many artisans from Africa, Vietnam, India the Philippines, Indonesia, Haiti, Mexico, China, Thailand and beyond. Having worked with the best-of-the-best, we have chosen the finest weavers to produce some of the most beautiful baskets in the world. We hope you and your customers enjoy their cycling experience even more with the addition of a Nantucket Bike Basket. As a second generation basket company, all of us at Nantucket Bike Baskets take great pride in our quality and workmanship. We hope you will also look at each basket as a work of art.”
