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.

Harry’s Recovery Child Trailer Turned Cargo Part 2

About a year ago, we posted up a great example of converting a bike child trailer into a bike cargo trailer. Basically, the trailer was stripped down to its bare essentials and rebuilt for carrying gear and goods. Harry was kind enough to pass along these photos of the finished product all loaded up for a camping trip. With a little bit of ingenuity, it doesn’t cost to much to have a whole lot of fun with a bike trailer.

In Harry’s words:

Happy ending to my trailer story. You guys featured the beginning of my trailer rebuild/rehab, but I’m including 2 photos of the beginning. I finally got to take the trailer camping for 4 days, it performed perfectly. In the end, I dispensed with the fabric around the frame, opting instead to just use it as a cargo trailer. With 10 bungee cords, my load was secure. And I had plenty of huge ziploc bags in case of rain.
Total cost: $75
Total enjoyment: infinite
