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.

Doug’s Big Load Bike Trailer

Thanks for the great pics and write up Doug!

“Hey just saw your post about the lack of pictures you’ve received and decided to send this in. The is the trailer I built over the summer. It was made with steel tubing from an old grill and a benchpress bench. I cut and welded it all together including the dropouts which I made from some steel plate. The wheels are from garbage picked bikes, so this was a pretty cheap project. The deck is 28″x40″ which actually makes it perfect for hauling a single house hold appliance, because appliances are made to fit through doors that wide. I included a spot for the toolbox so I could carry extra straps, bungee cords, and tools. I have used it to move the grill in the picture and plan on using this to go dumpster diving, and to run errands. I bike commute every day and having trailer is essential to doing more with a bike.”
