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.

For the uninitiated, BOB Trailers are the trailers that have spearheaded the emergence of bike cargo trailers over the last 15 years. We are huge fans of these trailers for their maneuverability in tight situations on and off-road, ruggedness and adaptability for a variety of uses.

As big fans of the BOB, we’ve done quite a bit of writing about the BOB Trailer in this blog over the past few years. I’ve compiled a list of links to every BOB Trailer related blog post that we’ve written to prove the point:
