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 use the walky dog with Allie. I tried to teach her to run next to the bike and pay attention to it but she kept coming in towards the bike. Lloyd does great with me just holding his leash though. He stays in position and keeps an eye on where they bike is. The walky dog attachment keeps Allie so she can't run into the bike. I still trained her by walking the bike and holding her leash to teach her not to run after things when with the bike.
I had to order mine online. The bike attachment makes it less likely to get pulled down by the dog as it has springs in it that absorb the shock of the dog pulling on the bike. I still use mine with Allie, she just doesn't seem to get not moving in towards the bike.
