Family Cycling Blog:

More and more parents and kids are discovering the recreational, transportation and health benefits of cycling together.

Family Cycling is fun.

And the fun can start young. We discuss the family adventures, the gear that families use, and how to use it safely.

Turn kids from passive, parent-powered passengers into active cyclists themselves as they grow.

Submit Your Family Cycling Photos

Cycling together as a family can be more fun and meaningful than the most epic tour. And the photos you take make irresistible blog fodder -- and we mean that in a really good way.

We love to collect photos of the products that make bikes part of the family. Send us anything from that photo of your child first learning to ride, to that photo of the whole family out on a cycling. Submit your family cycling photos here and we'll let you know when we publish them.

Burley Trailer Celebrity Sightings

Our pal Eric over at Burley churned up a few interesting things from Burley Headquarters.

Hi BikeTrailerBlog readers. It is I, your fearless occasional correspondent from Eugene Oregon, Eric Hanson. I’m here once again to regale you with some stories about Burley trailers in action.

One of the coolest things about working here at Burley is seeing how passionate so many of our customers are. People call us every day to tell us how much they love their trailer. And were collecting photos from all over the world.

I was initially going to write about a group of touring cyclists riding across the country in various directions. Many of them are riding with a Burley Nomad, which they value for its durability and large carrying capacity. But then I heard on the radio this morning that Paul McCartney is on tour and I started wondering about his method of transportation.

You may remember Sir Paul from the cover of Meet the Beatles, or Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band (hes not really dead). But here at Burley, this is our favorite picture of the man.

That’s right, Sir Paul is riding with his daughter in a Burley DLite. While I feel bad that this poor girl has to grow up in the Hamptons surrounded by paparazzi flashbulbs, I think we can all take comfort in the fact that shes benefiting from the best, safest and most comfortable bicycle trailer out there. In fact, it looks like shes having fun!

There’s a long and growing list of cycling celebrities. Fellow musician David Byrne may be the most famous, but my personal favorite is Blue II. Blue is the mascot at Butler University, everybody’s favorite underdog from the 2010 NCAA basketball tournament.

And Blue gets around in style. Check out his ride:

That right there is the Mercedes-Benz of pet carriers, the Burley Tail Wagon. This is a ride fit for the king of the jungle. Head on over to to check it out.

Were still looking for our first celebrity sighting with the new Burley Travoy, but I know its only a matter of time. And I should remind you that wed like to make you a minor internet celebrity. If you have a Travoy, send us a picture of your trailer carrying something we haven’t seen yet and well send you a t-shirt. Learn more at, or post a comment and let us know what you’ve been hauling with a trailer.
