Bike Trailer Blog:

All hail the bike cargo trailer!

Bike cargo trailers are amazing tools for getting more out of a bicycle -- and keeping you a out of your car. In all their variety, bike cargo trailers are the perfect tools for hauling stuff by bike.

We cover touring, commuting, errands, and generally doing more by bike -- so we don't leave out cargo bikes and conversions.

The topics of bike child trailers and trailer-cycles are covered in our Family Cycling section.

Submit Your Bike Trailer Photos

This blog is about sharing the fun, the utility, and the creativity that bike trailers can inspire. We want photos of how you've used your trailer -- whether it's an off-the-shelf model in a beautiful or interesting setting, or if it's a Franken-trailer customized in a way only you could have conceived.

Photos help to spread ideas, and stimulate discussion. It doesn't matter if you bought from one of our shops or not -- Bike Trailer Shop, Bike Bag Shop and Bike Kid Shop. Your photos and the stories behind them want to be seen and heard.

To wrap up this collection of bike trailer videos, I found a few videos that get into the message of bicycle transportation.

Selling the Revolution

This video was put together by the Xtracycle crew when they were first getting the Xtracycle out there. It tells the story of the Xtracycle by presenting the noble ambitions of the company and the product, the biases against it, and how the Xtracycle can improve your life.

Xtracycle Lifestyle

This photo/quote montage cycling video set to a quirky-groove soundtrack expresses the soul of living with an Xtracycle as your major mode of transportation.

John Burke: the Al Gore of the bike trade?

Finally this video has nothing to say specifically about bike cargo trailers but rather is a message to the bike industry by Trek’s CEO John Burke. His message is that the bike industry needs to put more emphasis on bicycle advocacy in order to grow the marketplace for bikes.

This message is intended to call the bicycle industry to support bicycle advocacy through a profit motive. However it is also an appropriate message for all cycling enthusiasts. Rather than focusing just on the latest gear or trends we can express our love of cycling by working on spreading biking throughout the community. This will help to grow the industry and the cycling infrastructure making better riding and more accessible equipment available to everyone.

    the video with the presentation has been uploaded by me. originaly it comes as quicktime/flash only but I thought that it’s worth spreading the idea as far as one can.
