Forced exercise (dog running on a leash, isn't able to start and stop on it's own) is not recommended until the dog is 18-24 months of age otherwise it's detrimental to their joints.

What they mean by detrimental to their joints when the puppy reaches 18-24 months old their growth plates close in the joints. After the growth plates are closed then you can ride a bike with them. Of course you have go slow at first keep an eye out on their feet and paw pads.
