Leash attatchments for a Bike

I am planning on buying a bike attatchment to run my dogs with and I have a few questions.
My ten month old is super active and I would like to know if anyone has ideas about how far I should take her with the bike? I am a bit nervous as I don't want to over work her, but she'd adore going with the bike, I tested her out off leash around our yard and she loved it, I'm too afraid to try it with just a leash as she has a tendancy to just like freeze when we see another dog and I don't want her to do it while we're on the bike, as I don't want her to get hurt.

I tried her with just the leash and it was a nightmare lol. The attatchment would keep her in a heel position, and she can't really jerk against it too hard, with some work I think it would be just fine.
She has a tendency to want to lean into the leash on the bike, and with my hand n the handle bars it makes the whole bike tilt towards her, which spooks her. Offleash in our yard she's great, but I wouldn't want to try her around other dogs, or around cars.
I tried Kali with the bike again and she did pretty well, I think I could work with her on the not bolting after stuff thing, or in her case freezing when she sees a dog. She managed to go past a barking dog this time without such a fuss, though the fourwheeler on the side of the road bothered her more.
after some experimenting I figured out a reasonable pace for me on the bike is like a...slow trot for Kali. She's got super long legs so it's like no problem for her.
