No, unless you have a roomy bike ;)

You could, however, be "sur ton vélo".

Bonjour Vernon !

As Chris wrote, je suis dans mon vélo would mean you're actually inside your bike, which is impossible :)
However, you could be inside your car, a train, a plane, so you will use dans with these:
Je suis dans ma voiture, un train, un avion...

Bonne journée !
